Most of the posters chosen-- even though they span from post-war era to present-- have a strong 60s feel to the composition and style. The book is packed with images; most of the spreads consist of six 5 inch-ish tall posters to a page, larger 4 posters to a page spreads, occasional 1 huge poster on an entire page and even select horizontal posters spread across 2 pages. The types of posters cover Europe, the Americas, Japan, and a small 'rest of the world' section. The book covers classic movies in film history as well as rare art-house, cult, and B-grade movies.
