Alternative Movie Posters: Film Art from the Underground - Matthew Chojnacki

I received a free copy from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review!


I'd seen some other people reading and discussing Alternative Movie Posters here on Booklikes and it made me very curious. I really like clever movie posters, preferably with a lot of references you'll only get after watching the actual movie. Unfortunately, nowadays there are few of these posters left. A random photoshopped picture of the leading actor/actress just doesn't feel the same.


This book shows art from the 'underground' alternative movie front. Some of the covers featured were very clever, and were far superior to the ones actually used. Another nice aspect of this book was the artists talking about their favourite/first movies. It reminded me of a bunch of (mostly) '80s movies I still have to see.


It's not a book to read in one go, but I'd definitely recommend it.
