Item Number 12: Film Posters of the Forties

Item number 12: Film Posters of the Forties: The Essential Movies of the Decade

When I spoke of nice film posters yesterday, that was also subconcious foreshadowing, for I can link on neatly with this book. I currently see it as an information source for pretty pictures, as well as informaton on how those pictures were produced (which ought to come in handy, as I've thrown 60% of my D.T. GCSE down the drain), as well as coffee table reading. Without the likes of Photoshop and digital cameras in the 40s, I'm very interested in just how they managed to create all the cool effects on them.
I actually have to book for the Film Posters Of The 1990s book, and think that it is insightful and interesting. It has beautiful colour photography. I'd also liked the 50s version, but I won't be greedy. One at a time.

I have the one for the 60s, 50s and 40s. They're amazing, but so damn expensive!

The 50s had much better film posters, imo

Oh, of course I love the Gilda poster. ;) But it's really hard to find unique or obscure 40s posters to buy. I spent the longest time looking for that colorful cartoon one for Children of Paradise. I do like that book though; I've looked through those. Just can't find their selections.

P.S. Mystic, you may want to use the sign-in validation feature in order to stop further spam, like the one two posts above me. (However, this does confirm that you're popular!)

Ah. That's one of those books I like to quickly browse through (which I coincidentally did just a few weeks ago) but don't really care to own.

They were all hand drawn. That's how they were done.
