Black Dragon Press: DIE NIBELUNGEN: SIEGFRIED & KRIEMHILD'S REVENGE by Peter Diamond!

Tomorrow we’re excited to release a beautiful pair of posters in our partnership with Black Dragon Press for Fritz Lang's DIE NIBELUNGEN by Peter Diamond!

Everyone knows Fritz Lang’s METROPOLIS (1927) but his most remarkable film-making achievement was 1924’s DIE NIBELUNGEN. A strange, visually staggering monster of a story, divided into two distinct but interconnected films, which sees Lang working on his grandest canvas, it's 'fire and brimstone' spectacle as vast and audacious as anything seen in the silent era, or arguably since.

To celebrate Lang’s crowning achievement we’re delighted to release two posters for Fritz Lang’s DIE NIBELUNGEN by Vienna-based illustrator Peter Diamond. DIE NIBELUNGEN: SIEGFRIED and DIE NIBELUNGEN: KRIEMHILD'S REVENGE will be available to purchase this Tuesday (7/31) at a random time via mondotees.com, and at 5PM UK time from Black Dragon Press's website.

“An Art Deco interpretation of an ancient epic text by a turn-of-the-century Austrian filmmaker is so up my alley it’s almost ridiculous. Working on these posters was an absolute treat.

"The most striking thing to me about the two films of DIE NIBELUNGEN was how different in tone the story becomes as the focus shifts from Siegfried to Kriemhild. The first is very direct and immediate, the second is much more twisting and difficult.

"I’ve designed the posters with that in mind, aiming for a unity of style between them while still reflecting that contrast in tone and in the characterisation of the leading figures. The color scheme is inspired by the warm golden tones laid over the black and white in the original version of the films.

"These two posters are meant to be together, but I hope that each will stand on its own as an homage to what’s become a favourite film of mine.” - Peter Diamond
