There’s not exactly a shortage of Star Trek fan art out there, but Juan Ortiz came up with a fresh and fascinating angle for his new book Star Trek: The Art of Juan Ortiz (out today from Titan Books). Ortiz, a longtime Trek enthusiast and gifted graphic artist, designed a movie-style poster for every single episode of the original series. Drawing inspiration from pulp book covers, advertisements, comic books, and ‘60s movie posters, the achievement is impressive to Trekkies and ‘60s design fans alike. After the jump, check out just a few of Ortiz’s original posters, along with (exclusive to Flavorwire) his own comments on the episodes and his inspirations for the images.
