(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'An incredible illustrated history of the movie poster.' - Hey U Guys

Showcasing the best movie posters by the top designers in the field, this rich visual history of the film poster charts the evolution from the earliest days to the present, explaining how they were used to sell both films and the stars, and how they lured audiences to cinemas across the globe to make an industry. Understand how posters enhance the brand of a movie or a star, and how they represent the crossover between creatives with this stylish art book. With insights on movie genres, influential designers, Hollywood politics and the impact of typography, this visually stunning book reveals how a powerful advertising medium became an artform itself and changed the face of graphic design.
AUTHOR: Ian Haydn Smith is a London-based writer. He is the update editor on 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die and is the editor of BFI Filmmakers Magazine and Curzon Magazine.
