The Silent Film Poster: Russia 1900-1930
-- Includes a comprehensive introductory essay on the history of the film poster-- Presents 161 full-page color posters-- Includes biographies of the designers featuredThe film poster, the youngest in the poster family, inherited many generic features of the commercial advertisement: the drive and energy and the abundance of information. However, it was necessary for the film poster to distinguish itself from the collage of advertisements, as an announcement of a motion picture. Its artistic design had to imply the most characteristic and easily recognizable features of the film -- what impressed the audience most -- the very idea of the "motion picture."This intriguing volume is based on silent film posters from the Russian collections. Full-page reproductions of 161 Russian silent film posters are presented here in chronological order: from the very beginning of the 20th century until the 1930s.
