back to the future exhibition

An exhibition is to be held alongside the book release

It's Back to the Future day! Whilst we already have a whole host of Back to the Future (opens in new tab) content for you to peruse to celebrate this momentous occassion, we couldn't resist covering this brilliant new project from New Rule (opens in new tab). 1.21 GIGAWATTS is an illustrated tribute to all three movies.

The collective asked 30 international artists and illustrators to create their own original tribute to this much loved franchise, to be exhibited and complied into a book, releasing next month. Having already reached their goal on Kickstarter (opens in new tab), it's clear this project is already a hit with fans of illustration and movies alike.

Featuring the work of Tom Mac, DXTR, Marie Bergeron, Rob Flowers and loads more, the style across the project as varied as it is inspiring. "All work is created as a tribute to a much-loved trilogy, paying respect to some of the greatest movies to come out of the 80s!" they explain.
