Alternative Movie Posters: Film Art From The Underground

Alternative Movie Posters: Film Art From The Underground

Product Review (submitted on December 6, 2013):
As a remedy to the rash of uninspired, "Giant Photoshopped Actor Head" movie posters which festoon your local multiplex and are designed to do nothing more than sell a film's biggest stars, there has been a recent, welcome trend of illustrators and design firms creating iconic and playful images that exemplify the potential of the one-sheet. Over two hundred such works are collected in Matthew Chojnacki's Alternative Movie Posters: Film Art from the Underground, alongside interviews with the artists. Ranging from the nostalgic to the cartoony to the experimental, these posters have been hung in galleries, released at event screenings, and sold online as fan art. The only common element is that they are all eye-popping and you will want them on your wall.
