Lost Art of the Movie Poster

Here is an outstanding article written by "Canadian Will" over at and I whole heartily agree with every word he has written.

  1. I've never really thought about it, but he's right. The old posters kick butt on anything made today. Not at all surprised originals in good condition of so much dosh.


  2. Fantastic article, and I agree wholeheartedly. While I've seen a few fairly decent posters using photoshop or what have you, the vast majority of film posters today are dull and boring. The original artwork for movie posters was such an amazing way to capture the imagination of the movie-goer. I still remember so many of those posters that piqued my interest as a kid. Oftentimes, the art made me feel I just HAD to see the movie in question. I can't say that about many movie one-sheets today.

  3. That was a great link. Being a designer I have to say that I do miss that style of poster.
