LOS ANGELES, CA, September 27, 2018: Classic Stills, a Los Angeles and London-based publisher of rare and iconic photographs, has partnered with Universal Brand Development to release a limited-edition collection of stills from the beloved film, The Big Lebowski. This will be the first time stills from the movie will be available as gallery-quality fine art prints.
“We are beyond excited to offer these iconic images as limited-edition fine art prints for the first time,” said CEO Rene Freling. “Fans will finally be able let The Dude abide in their homes.”
The collections feature 12 photos from The Big Lebowski, including iconic moments and publicity stills from the movie. Between 100-250 numbered prints of each image will be available for purchase, with prices ranging from $149/£125 to $495/£395.

“Millions of us have fallen in love with The Big Lebowski. This is an unprecedented opportunity to own official fine art photographs that will transport us back into this Universal Pictures classic whenever we look at them,” said Freling.
Classic Stills images are developed using the chromogenic print (C-print) process and are printed on archival-quality photo paper. Every print is framed meticulously by hand, includes acid-free matting and hinging, and is protected by UV acrylic to prevent fading.
The framed stills are available in three sizes:

16” X 20”: $295/£225
24” X 30”: $495/£395
