In a creative nod to hardcore film buffs, London-based graphic designer Tom Ward has created a series of illustrations that represent not films themselves, but the fictional bars that are featured in the films' universes. These illustrations take the form of that classic piece of bar room paraphernalia: the coaster.

Beyond simply listing the bars from the various movies on his coaster designs, Tom Ward did his best to emulate the stylistic traits that those fictional bars might incorporate. For instance, the coasters from fantasy film franchises like Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings incorporate rich and ornate majuscule lettering and coat-of-arms styled animals, while the coasters from movies set in the 50s, like The Temple of Doom and Bugsy Malone, use modernist, Art Deco designs.
