This book is about the "art" of the movie poster. If you are looking
for a great film with bad poster art, it probably will not be in here.
This book is more than a book on movie posters, but a great book on graphic design! Anyone going into advertising or graphic design has to have this book! The only problem I have with the book is it's lack of coverage given to American and Independent film posters. I think there is way to much coverage given to foreign movie posters. Having said this, you will find that the foreign poster art really is amazing and gives the film a whole diffrent "feel" than the Americian poster art that we are used to. All in all, you will find poster designs for movies that you have never seen before. Last, but not least, the book is an excellent refrence/shopping guide to the wonderful world of movie posters.
I was so taken by the book that I got in the spirit and ordered a poster as a Christmas present. It's a relatively affordable way to get into collecting.
Any film lover, who by the way should have the eye to appreciate any type of art, must have this book, 1,000+ posters are inside, along with all the proper info, divided by country; comparing film posters like for example "Apocalypse Now", "Psycho", "Star Wars"; giving a brief but very useful designer information liken Saul Bass, Zdenék Ziegler, Peter Strausfeld, etc.
This book deserves a 10 star rating.

The book itself is a piece of art. It is well made with a solid binding, which is important for a hardback of this size. Read morePublished on January 6, 2013 by Geoffrey A Potter
