Film set graphic glories for sale; from Star Trek control panels to a Jurassic Park leaflet

Film set graphic glories for sale; from Star Trek control panels to a Jurassic Park leaflet

Having a graphic design background, I often find my gaze lingering over graphic pieces in films like control panels and signage as well as furniture and decor. Judging from the reaction to a story about control panels I shared on our Facebook page recently, it would seem many others do too. It therefore seemed apt to show my pick of graphic glories created for film and TV series’ which are currently for sale – from Star Trek to Jurassic Park – with which you can adorn your walls.
