Film Posters of the 60s: The Essential Movies of the Decade : from the Reel Poster Gallery Collection
Tony Nourmand, Graham Marsh
Aurum, 1997 - Film posters - 127 pages
Representing the commerce and culture of this era in films and capturing the mood of the turbulent decade when everything - art, fashion, morals, music, politics, philosophy - was in a state of flux, the book showcases film posters for such classics as: French New Wave and the British Kitchen Sink; Sergio Leone's Spaghetti Westerns and Andy Warhol's underground movies; Hollywood blockbusters like Cleopatra and Psycho and art-house classics like Blow-up and Un Homme et une Femme; plus, of course, Bond, Bardot, Barbarella, the Beatles, and more. Moreover, the films are represented not only by the posters that were designed for their domestic markets, but also by posters from Japan, Eastern Europe, and elsewhere, often juxtaposed with their American or British counterparts to show just how differently audiences throughout the world perceived the movies and their stars. Full of the tension and energy that defined the decade, and with over 250 full-color posters from a dozen different countries and authoritative commentary from experts in the field, Film Posters of the 60s will delight all film buffs as well as anyone interested in graphic design, advertising, and American culture.
