Introduction: Welcome to the Archives Of The Apes


Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates he kills for sport, or lust, or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home, and yours. Shun him. Drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of Death.

Welcome to the Archives Of The Apes. This blog celebrates everything about the mighty Planet Of The Apes saga, 
from Pierre Boulle's original 1963 novel La Planète des Singes, via the classic films of the sixties and seventies, the short-lived 1974 TV serial and its animated follow-up and Tim Burton's ill-conceived and much-despised 2001 "re-imagining", right up to date with the latest entries Rise, Dawn and War. Here you'll view a lot of seldom-seen images, many of them courtesy of my friends Lawgiver (a.k.a. Angela May Rushmere) and Felino Velasquez. Also included are Apes fan art, comic art, international movie posters and book covers and a number of images from our own classic film of the seventies, Cornelius And Zira. Sincere gratitude goes out to Hunter Goatley, Ciaran Butler, Ste Edwards, Tim Parati and Mark Talbot-Butler for publishing a lot of the rarer material. Please note: all original images were found on the internet and are assumed to be in the public domain. Any copyright infringement is accidental and unintended and should not be inferred. Finally, I am a mere primitive Human and as such I may make the odd error. Please forgive any gaffes, or better still, enlighten me! Cheers!
