Description

Film noir is all about style, even more than it is about crime. The poster art from the noir era has a bold look and an iconography all its own. During noir's golden age, studios commissioned these arresting illustrations for even the lowliest "B" thriller.The Art of Noir is the first book to present this striking artwork in a lavishly produced, large-format, full-color volume. The more than 300 dazzling posters and other promotional material range from the classics to rare archive films such asThe Devil Thumbs a Ride and Blonde Kiss. With rare offerings from around the world and background information on the illustrators,The Art of Noir is the ultimate companion for movie buffs and collectors, as well as artists and designers.show more
