Matthew Chojnacki's new book, Alternative Movie Posters, collects work from one hundred different artists to re-imagine some of the industry's most famous films on a one-sheet.
The collection of talent assembled here is phenomenal. The book has 200 posters, and it’s artists range from twenty different countries, really giving a new perspective to some of these cinema classics.
In an era of studio posters that endlessly rely on enhanced head shots of film actors, this book chronicles a network of designers reinventing film posters and bringing “the art” back to the one-sheet. This dynamic group of illustrators have reinvigorated the public’s interest in film artwork, crafting stunning pieces for classic and cult flicks. Underground film posters sell out within minutes due to their limited quantities, and are now the most coveted posters by ardent moviegoers.
Here are a few samples of some of the posters featured in the book, I went with the ones that I’d most like to hang on my wall at home…
Alternative Movie Posters hit stores on October 29th, and is available, of course, on Amazon.
