Overview

For the first time, world vintage movie poster authority Tony Nourmand shares his personal selection of the 100 essential movie posters of all time. For 30 years, Nourmand has been instrumental in redefining 20th-century movie posters as an art form and a valuable collectible. He brings his vast experience and wealth of knowledge to these pages, defining a great or essential movie poster as the most effective in terms of design and impact. 100 Movie Posters: The Essential Collection features stunning images from famous designers like Saul Bass, Paul Rand and Bill Gold; renowned photographers like Philippe Halsman, Eddie Adams and George Hurrell and celebrated artists like Al Hirschfeld, Alberto Vargas and Richard Amsel. It features classic posters from King Kong, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Metropolis, as well as more unusual and lesser-known works from Eastern Europe or the silent era. The beautiful and diverse imagery from around the world is reproduced in magnificent quality and is accompanied by Nourmand’s fascinating commentary and an insightful introduction by Christopher Frayling, who writes: "Nourmand has the eye, the persistence, the enthusiasm and the experience to select a ‘hundred best’ that actually means something."
