Die Nibelungen Movie Poster Screen Prints by Peter Diamond x Mondo x Black Dragon Press

Die Nibelungen Movie Poster Screen Prints by Peter Diamond x Mondo x Black Dragon Press - Die Nibelungen Siegfried & Die Nibelungen Kriemhild’s Revenge

Mondo is teaming up with Black Dragon Press to release a beautiful pair of movie posters for Fritz Lang's Die Nibelungen by Peter Diamond! While everyone knows Fritz Lang’s film Metropolis, his most remarkable film-making achievement was 1924’s Die Nibelungen. As Mondo explained, Die Nibelungen is “a strange, visually staggering monster of a story, divided into two distinct but interconnected films, which sees Lang working on his grandest canvas, it's ‘fire and brimstone’ spectacle as vast and audacious as anything seen in the silent era, or arguably since.”

To celebrate Lang’s crowning achievement, Mondo and Black Dragon Press are releasing two posters for Die Nibelungen by Vienna-based illustrator Peter Diamond. “Die Nibelungen: Siegfried” and “Die Nibelungen: Kriemhild’s Revenge” will be available to purchase at a random time today, Tuesday, July 31st, at the Mondo online store and at 5PM UK time at the Black Dragon Press online store. Each Die Nibelungen movie poster by Peter Diamond is an 18”x24” hand numbered screen print. Both prints are limited to 70 pieces and will retail for $55 / £40.

“An Art Deco interpretation of an ancient epic text by a turn-of-the-century Austrian filmmaker is so up my alley it’s almost ridiculous. Working on these posters was an absolute treat. These two posters are meant to be together, but I hope that each will stand on its own as an homage to what’s become a favourite film of mine.” – Peter Diamond
