sound or movement, a movie poster must attract
the viewersí attention, and somehow portray
the whole spirit of the movie at a momentís
great deal of the success or failure of the
film rests on the movie poster artists'
ability to entice the viewer to want to
see the film.
With the beautiful artwork and the soul
of the movie in one piece of paper, itís
no wonder why movie poster collecting
has become so popular. Itís like bottling your
favorite memories of a movie and saving
them for later on this simple poster.
The movie poster artists that carry this
heavy burden have to be some of the best
in the world, so we take this site to
salute these mostly unheralded giants that a
great deal of our collections are based
How terrible would our collection be if
each movie poster only had the title on
Artist of the Month
With the passing
of John this month, we wanted to
show some of the GREAT artwork that
he produced. His wonderful artwork
has delighted untold numbers of
collectors. John was considered
one of the greatest poster artists
Something to remember
Each country is
different in the variety of poster sizes
that were used AND the way the poster
artist worked with the studios. Quite
often different artists would do artwork
for different poster sizes, OR the
artist would supply several different
pieces, so take a look at the different
pieces for each film
