Several years ago, I posted about graphic designer Jon Heilman's perfect replica of the time portal map from Terry Gilliam's 1981 movie Time Bandits. Since then, I've received a steady stream of inquiries from readers who vaguely remembered my post and wanted to buy one of the maps. I'm delighted to announce that Jon/Metropolis Graphics has now set up shop in the Boing Boing Bazaar in the Makers Market. The maps are printed on canvas, measure 40" x 24.5" and cost $100. I have one and can vouch for their exquisite quality.
Jon is also selling several other fantastic paper prop replicas, including Professor Marvel's banner from Wizard of Oz, and a pack of three Battlestar Galactica counterfeit cubits (above) for $10.
Time Bandits map, Battlestar Galactica cubits, etc.
