What is the difference between a Double Sided and Single Sided Cinema Poster?

May 19, 2022|Categories: Collecting, Poster Art|

A single-sided poster is white on the reverse. Generally, posters that were printed before the year 2000 will be single-sided. A Double-sided poster has the exact same image printed on the reverse. This makes them harder and more expensive to print. An example of this can be seen in the Spectre photo in the article image.  The reason posters are printed double-sided is to enable the poster to be put in a cinema lightbox. Shining a light behind a double-sided poster illuminates the colors of the poster. Without a lightbox being used a single-sided and double-sided poster will look exactly [...]

The Offset Printing Process Four colours are used when printing with offset lithography. The colours are cyan, magenta, yellow and black and they form [...]

The Film Posters of Saul Bass

January 30, 2022|Categories: Poster Art|

This article is the first of a series in which we will explore some of the great film poster designers and artists.  When we conceived of the idea to produce this series, the only person to start with was Saul Bass. As well as being the most well-known ‘film poster designer’, Saul Bass is probably also the most influential ‘graphic designer’ to have ever lived. Born in Brooklyn in 1920, while studying design  Saul Bass was mentored by the influential Bauhaus theorist György Kepes. Bauhaus has been described as a severe but elegant geometric style carried out with a great [...]

Photographs from the London Shop & Gallery

December 8, 2021|Categories: Cultural Landmarks, Poster Art|

Our temporary shop and gallery at 33 Great Windmill Street, Soho is now closed. We thought long and hard about which posters to frame for the gallery. In the end we opted for a range of colours and sizes, in the hope they would complement each other. The framed posters are all in excellent condition, generally rolled or linen  backed and ready to be hung in a welcoming home. From left to right in the image below you can see a US One Sheet poster for Pulp Fiction, UK Quad posters for 'For Your Eyes Only' and 'Drive' (in [...]
