Title: Reel Art - Great Posters of the Golden Age of the Silver Screen
Description: New York, Abbeville Press. 1988, First Edition. (ISBN: 1558594035). Soft Cover, 32mo - over 4" - 5" tall. A Fine unmarked copy in card covers. The four decades between 1910 and 1950 were the golden age of the American movie poster, an era when wonderful films like It Happened One Night and Top Hat were promoted through the talents of legendary illustrators like Thomas Hart Benton, Norman Rockwell, Howard Chandler Christy and James Montgomery Flagg, as well as a small army of unknowns. It was a time when big studios lavished fortunes on poster campaigns from modest 'one sheets' to gargantuan 'forty eight sheets' that swamped the sides of buildings. Today such graphics fetch five-figure prices from collectors seeking a Casablanca or a King Kong. This small volume presents a world-class selection of these desirable posters, many never before published. 11. Fine/No Jacket.
