Cool Stuff: Shag's 'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Prints From Dark Hall Mansion

Though there are contemporary audiences who enjoyed Tim Burton's odd take on Roald Dahl's classic children's book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, for many the definitive big screen version of the story came in 1971 in the form of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. With an unforgettable performance from Gene Wilder as the titular chocolatier, the musical take on the book is a true classic. Now you can show your love for the film with some new artwork from the artist Shag available at Dark Hall Mansion.

Check out the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory artwork after the jump.

Here's the standard edition of the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory artwork from Shag:


And here's the variant edition of the same piece:


These limited edition 16-color screen prints are done in his trademark style, each measuring 20.5x40.5 inches. The bad news is that these pieces are outrageously expensive, even for collectible artwork. The standard version of the print (with an edition of 100) will cost you $425 while the variant (with an edition of 45) will take $550 out of your pocket. In addition, each version of the print will have a foil edition (each with 15 prints available) for $695.

However, these prices shouldn't be all that surprising since Shag (aka Josh Agle) is quite the famous artist. His style is instantly recognizable, and it'll look good framed on any wall. If you have the money to buy one of these, the prints will be on sale starting on Tuesday, July 12 at 12:30pm Pacific time.
