My Favorite Posters

I feel one of the great unappreciated arts of motion picture, in movie poster design. These posters can lure the audience, capture the imagination of the viewer and really help put the audience in the right mind. They are also just great examples of the graphic arts of the time.
 Enjoy a few of my favorites!

  1. It's so interesting how many of these are older movies.

    1. How so? First, many of my favorite films are classics. Furthermore, often current films just create posters out of stills from the film in question. Obviously, in such an instance, there is very little artistry involved. As my blog is technically a dual art/film blog, I am only interested in artistic posters.
