Hong Kong’s best kept secrets: vintage posters store
Online store Pulp Original Posters sells cool vintage film posters and collectors' items
Movie buffs will love Pulp Original Posters, an online store offering super-cool vintage posters promoting cultural events including films, gallery exhibitions and gigs. Owner Josh Carey set it up one and a half years ago as an offshoot to Bondi Books, a rare books outlet he runs in Chai Wan.
Carey sources posters from as far as Italy, Japan the US and France, and while the graphics are eye-grabbing the prices (most hover around HK$1,500 to HK$2,000) will also appeal, especially considering how expensive framing is in the city. “I wanted to keep the prices low so I can appeal to a wider audience,” explains Carey.
One of his favourites – and one of the rarer items in stock – is a Japanese-edition film poster of Fist of Fury, the Hong Kong film starring martial arts hero Bruce Lee.
