Movie Posters: The History of Cinema from the Origins to the Present
This book focuses on some of the finest movie posters ever produced some because of the originality of their design, others because of their success to withdraw attention and making a film seem unmissable. Through the posters of the 1930s and 40s we can relive the classic era of Hollywood, to the 1950s posters promoting the use of wide screen. As the Hollywood studio system declined, the rise of European cinema and other national movements in Asia and beyond would introduce new ideas to narrative films and their advertising which would have a global impact.
A collection of posters featuring movies which have helped shape the history of world cinema. A great collection of not only the posters of the blockbusters or classics movies of Hollywood Golden Era, but also great European, Latin American and Asian movies which changed film-making history.
