Sir Paul Smith recently designed a series of four silk-screen posters for the release the film, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, the film is an adaptation of John Le Carre’s 1974 novel. The film will star Gary Oldman, Colin Firth and Tom Hardy and was recently featured at the Venice Film Festival 2011.

Smith collaborated closely with the film’s director Tomas Alfredson in the early conceptual stages of the film. Working in a creative capacity, he offered thoughts and insights on 1970s London and advised on mood, color, and photographic approaches. Motion picture films play a huge role in shaping today’s pop culture, and to have an legendary visual artist and designer contribute to the project creates a nice mashup of modern mediums, one that is different from typical Hollywood.

Signed  by Smith, the posters will have a limited release of 50, and they will be available at Paul Smith shops from Sept 13.
