The Art of Hammer: The Official Poster Collection From the Archive of Hammer Films by Marcus Hearn

Over fifty years ago, with the release of The Curse of Frankenstein and Christopher Lee’s iconic performance in Dracula, Hammer ushered in a whole new era of blood and barely-restrained cleavage in glorious color, mixing sex and horror with a style and panache that made the small British company world famous.

The Art of Hammer collects the very best and most iconic movie posters produced for the Hammer studio. This lavish hardcover brings together rare artwork from around the world. Featuring Hammer’s greatest films, including The Curse of Frankenstein, the Dracula series, and many more.

As a long time Hammer films aficionado and collector, this book was a wonderful source to see many of the ultra rare posters that were created for these fantastic films. Many of the posters are so expensive that us non Hedge Fund types will never own them - making this book invaluable. The color photos are vivid and the book is well laid out. Kudos to Marcus Hearn for putting it together!
