80s Movies As Stained Glass Windows


To many, the movies of the 1980s are a religion. So it's fitting that some of the best films of that decade have been turned into stained glass window-style posters by graphic designer Van Orton.

The posters include colourful, stylish takes on Blade Runner, Gremlins and Big, among others. You can see more on Van Orton's official page.

The posters are available to buy if you contact vanortondesign@gmail.com. Maybe hang one in the most peaceful part of your house for quiet contemplation of the goodness of the era of big hair and synth soundtracks, or use one as the beginnings of a shrine.
