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 twentieth 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. Sometimes the artwork succeeds despite the film it represents like the poster for a lost film such as Hollywood (1923) or an unwatchable exploitation flick like Acid delirio dei sensi (1968). Better yet is when a great design meets a great film such as the Italian poster for La Dolce Vita (1960) or the American poster for 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).
