Sir Paul Smith has designed a series of four silk-screen posters to celebrate new movie Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, released later this month. The posters (which come in editions of 50 and are signed by Smith) will be sold for £100 each, with all profits going to Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres.
Smith collaborated with film’s director, Tomas Alfredson, in the early development stages of the movie, offering his insights on 1970s London. He advised on the mood, colour and photographic approach to take.
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is released in the UK and Ireland on September 16: a trailer for it can be viewed here. Smith’s prints will be on sale at Paul Smith shops from September 13.
