The Art of the B-Movie Poster edited by Adam Newell
Hardcover – Ginko Press – Oct2016 – 320 pages
1000 incredible posters from movies you’ve probably never seen, and in many cases will find hard to believe actually exist.
These exploitation epics were made cheaply for the drive-in and Grindhouse theatre circuits. Usually these films were cashing in on the latest craze, with brilliantly designed posters promising action, thrills, scares, and lots and lots of sex.
Take a trip back in time from the “moral panic” films and “Poverty Row” movies of the 1930s and ’40s, through the sci-fi and horror madness of the ’50s and ’60s, to the crazed action flicks and brazen XXX “porno chic” of the ’70s.
