Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Culled from the Reel Poster Gallery collection, this book presents a kaleidoscope of images that enshrine the ethos and icons of the turbulent 1960s: the French New Wave and the British Kitchen Sink; Andy Warhol's underground movies; Hollywood blockbusters; and of course, Bond, Bardot, Barbarella, and the Beatles. Includes 250 color posters.
Esquire
Film Posters of the 60s presents arresting examples of an art that vanished somewhere about the time modern life went caterwauling to hell and Karen Black's film career hit the toilet.
Booknews
From Nourmand's Reel Poster Gallery (London) come about 250 US and foreign original color film posters that reflect the 1960s in all its weirdly splendid diversity<-->speaking here mostly for themselves. The front and back covers feature: , , a Clint Eastwood spaghetti Western (), and Antonioni's . Ironically, the final image is Dylan's . No index. 10x12<">.
