Cinema Posters in the News

By |2021-09-04T08:20:34+01:00August 28, 2021|Categories: Collecting, Investment, Poster Art|

Cinema Posters made the national newspapers this week in the form of an article in the Telegraph, accompanied by an image of a UK cinema poster for 'For Your Eyes Only'. The reason for the coverage, as is often the case, is an upcoming auction at Sotheby's. The auction takes place on 7th September 21 and the full catalogue can be found on Sotheby's website. According to an expert from the auction, while Sean Connery James Bond posters remain the most popular. However, Roger Moore James Bond posters have doubled in value in the last 5 years. Another point from [...]

The Beatles in Cinema Posters

The Beatles, and their music, are a gift that continues to give with new legions of fans constantly emerging. Merchandise and memorabilia associated with the band also remains hugely popular. Film's and documentaries about the Beatles probably now run into the hundreds. However, there are five motion pictures in which the band appear and these are considered the 'Beatles films'. The five films are A Hard Days Night (1964), Help (1965), Magical Mystery Tour (1967), Yellow Submarine (1968), and Let It Be (1970). The films all had cinema releases, and the posters associated with them are, of course, highly coveted. [...]

Cinema Posters as Fine Art

By |2021-04-26T11:04:54+01:00April 2, 2021|Categories: Collecting, Investment, Poster Art|

Last week’s blog article on our website about BANKSY got us thinking about the similarities, and differences, between the market for cinema posters and other types of Fine Art. In this article, by answering a series of questions, we compare the two markets. What is Fine Art? The Cambridge Dictionary provides a good definition. Fine Art is drawings, paintings, and sculptures that are admired for their beauty and have no practical use. Are cinema posters considered to be Fine Art? A cinema poster is initially printed for a practical reason – to promote a film. At a later stage when [...]

Great Cinema Poster Books

By |2021-04-26T11:04:55+01:00February 18, 2021|Categories: Collecting, James Bond Posters, Poster Art|

We are always on the lookout for great books about cinema posters. It is a relatively sparse field of study by today’s standards. Nevertheless, there are some excellent books in circulation discussing the subject of moive posters. With collectors very much in mind, they have wonderful images and discussions about the history of our beloved pastime/enterprise. The following books are some of our favourites. Selling the Movie (Ian Haydn Smith) Ian Haydn Smith is as UK-based film journalist, editor of Curzon and BFI Filmmakers magazine, and somewhat prolific writer of top-quality books on Film and Cinema. ‘Selling the Movie’ is [...]

Cinema Posters that are Design Classics

By |2021-04-26T11:04:56+01:00November 10, 2020|Categories: Poster Art|Tags: , , , |

Often what draws us to a cinema poster is a love of the film, the actors in the image or an exquisite piece of artwork. However sometimes the attraction is different and the lines, curves or contours of the poster appeal to our innate love of symmetry. A design that appears almost simplistic at first serves up some magic and draws the viewer for an extra moment. This of course is a very personal reaction and there are thousands of posters that can be considered design classics. In this article we will at three. The Longest Day UK Quad Poster [...]

Andy Warhol Cinema Posters

By |2021-04-26T11:04:57+01:00September 11, 2020|Categories: Poster Art|Tags: , |

Walking around the brilliant and intensely quiet Andy Warhol exhibition in the Tate Modern recently got me wondering if the pop artist had ever produced a cinema poster. Warhol produced his own films and numerous portraits of famous actors (Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor can be seen in the Tate exhibition), so why not a movie poster(s)? Exiting through the gift shop I found a book – Andy Warhol: The Complete Commissioned Posters 1964-1987 by Paul Marechal – that answered my question. The book indexes fifty-two posters produced by Warhol to promote a product or event, raise funds or support [...]
