Independent filmmakers have always challenged and inspired graphic designers, illustrators and photographers to showcase their movies in the most unique way. This is the first book devoted to showcasing their creative efforts, from the cult classic David Lynch's Eraserhead to the latest sensation, Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation. It will be of value to poster collectors, graphic designers, and, of course, all film lovers. More than one hundred internationally recognized directors are profiled - including Jim Jarmusch, Spike Lee, Quentin Tarantino, David Lynch, The Coen Brothers, Wim Wenders, Pedro Almodovar, Jean-Luc Godard, Lars von Trier, Peter Greenaway, Wong Kar Wai, and Takeshi Kitano, to name a few. Chosen based upon both their importance in the independent film movement and their visual excellence, this eclectic selection of posters includes previously unpublished designs from Poland, Spain, Japan, France, and elsewhere, all from the rich and diverse collection of the Posteritati Gallery in New York. The book also features a text by David Kehr, entertainment writer for The New York Times, which captures the creative excitement of independent films and their growing importance to the global cultural scene.
