What is your favourite movie poster?
Film poster art is back….with a vengeance.
‘Alternative Movie Posters: Film Art from the Underground’ by Matthew Chojnacki is the first book to take a comprehensive look at the spectacular art of underground film posters.
In an era of studio posters that endlessly rely on enhanced head shots of film actors, this book chronicles a network of designers reinventing film posters and bringing “the art” back to the one-sheet. This dynamic group of illustrators have reinvigorated the public’s interest in film artwork, crafting stunning pieces for classic and cult flicks. Underground film posters sell out within minutes due to their limited quantities, and are now the most coveted posters by ardent moviegoers.
