Editorial Reviews

Zink
“From the early 20th century to the present day, this large-scale, brightly colored, coffee table book features the very best (and also the very cheesiest) advertisements for the hottest movie releases and stand-alone Hindi classics. It’s the perfect addition to any book-lover’s or movie buff’s collection.”
Midwest Book Review
“The oversized presentation and lavish, full-page posters in full color make for a fine and highly recommended survey of an industry little covered outside of India.”
