Movie Buffs and Art Lovers will Love these Stunning Vintage Posters!
(This Kindle Coffee Table Book is the first volume of a three-volume set of vintage hand-painted movie posters. The entire series consists of over 600 high-resolution images that have been digitally-enhanced in order to give them maximum impact. Most posters represent movies from the first three decades of the 20th century.)
These days most movie posters use photographs of scenes or characters from the movie but before the 1990s most movie posters employed hand-painted art to depict the scenes or characters. Viewing these stunning posters, it becomes evident that they didn’t skimp on the budget for the art department, hiring well-known artists to create their posters, which had become an integral part of movie studio advertising. Unfortunately for the artists, they were rarely given credit for their work, with their signatures almost never appearing on the poster.
