5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent collection of images, 27 Nov. 2008
By 
This review is from: The Art of the Modern Movie Poster: International Postwar Style and Design (Hardcover)
A beautifully produced, comprehensive selection of some of the most famous, as well as less well-known, film posters from around the world. Organised by country, with occasional sub-sections on particular designers or film-makers, it is an essential buy for any poster fan or collector. My only quibbles would be 1) I'd love to have seen more text, more narrative history of the medium, as well as the fantastic illustrations; 2) it has made my wish-list about four times longer than it was. A terrific book, probably now the best overview on the market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, colourful and colossal, 23 Feb. 2011
This review is from: The Art of the Modern Movie Poster: International Postwar Style and Design (Hardcover)
This is a superb book for anyone interested in classic films from around the world, and the imaginative artwork that has been developed to accompany and advertise them. It's split into chapters focusing on poster artwork originating from different countries (my favourites are Poland and France), but the artwork in each chapter covers classic films from all over the world. It's really interesting to see the different takes on poster artwork from country to country and some of it is extraordinary. The artwork itself dates from 1945 to present day, but the majority of these posters cover films from the 50's, 60's and 70's. If, like me, you love classic world cinema from these decades, then this is an extremely worthy and lovely book to own - impress your friends!!
