Today, people will again be buying the paper as a keepsake or potential collectible because of the huge black posters advertising the film "Twilight," which is nothing less than a pop-culture sensation and it hasn't even hit theaters yet. Looking at the posters that landed on my doorstep this morning, I was pretty amazed, wondering how many vats of black ink must have been used to print up this darkly stylized, special advertising insert. If you don't live in Southern California, don't worry, you will be able to get one of these soon on EBay....Of course Hero Complex is an LA Times blog, so they may be a wee bit biased, but the ads are rather nice images of the movies young stars. So of the off-hand chance that someone might be interested I rescued them from the bin.
So here's the deal. If you would like to have the inserts leave a comment on this post, first come first served. I'll mail it anywhere within the the United States or Canada - elsewhere if you are willing to pay postage.
Here are the details:
- two sheets that can be either assembled into a single 23" x 36" poster or, if the flip side is preferred, two posters 23"x18" and 23"x 20"
- it's matte newsprint, and predominantly black
- it was folded into the newspaper, so it's creased
I'm curious to know if there are many Twilight fans among the readers of my blog.
