- To launch Reel Art Press to the media and potential buyers in the UK and US

- To promote individual 2010 editions - The Rat Pack and Bill Gold: Posterworks.


The editions were positioned as collectors' items and the media campaign focused on the nostalgia attached to each edition, their high-profile contributors and compelling visuals. A previously unseen news hook was provided to the mainstream media alongside text from the books' contributors - author Shawn Levy, actor/director Clint Eastwood and poster designer Bill Gold. A launch event held in London was attended by 200 collectors and journalists.


The campaign generated 66 pieces of coverage, including multiple colour spreads in supplements in The Guardian, The Sunday Telegraph and The Independent.


Distribution deals have been signed with major retailers in London, the US and the Netherlands including Paul Smith (Los Angeles and Las Vegas), Daunt Books and Heywood Hill London.
