There are a lot of people out there making replicas of their favorite props from the movies. Stormtrooper armor, Ghostbuster packs, and even Deckard’s iconic sidearm are all popular subjects.
But who does MAGAZINES?  Kevin from the website PropSummit, that’s who.

He’s replicated, in incredible detail, magazine covers that were probably originally created by production designer Tom Southwell during the original shoot over 30 years ago, and placed on various newsstands and kiosks around the world of the future. Check out more designs, and more details about the hunt for the origin of these images, at the source story below.

    Hi there. I knew Kevin in the “real” world as we were neighbours and he helped me with my fan film Blade dumber – supplying these covers for the props (and much more). I am sorry to report that he passed away in 2011 before you loaded this article which I just found online.
