Treating the movie poster as the legitimate and pioneering art form that it is, this massive collection of more than 1,500 examples of international poster art will delight the art gallery crowd as much as the hard core film buff. Covering postwar movie history and spanning the globe, the book offers a comprehensive look at 2D representations of film. The focus here is firmly on the art side of the equation with works that would feel right at home in any fine art gallery or museum. Indeed, these posters do all reside at New York’s Posteritati Gallery. There are many milestones in graphic design represented on these fine glossy pages as well as a lifetime of moviegoing memories. Deluxe, gorgeous and thought-provoking all at once.
