Looking for movie poster featuring a BOOK
« on: January 24, 2019, 11:03:42 AM »
Hi.

I wonder if anyone can help. I have a graphic project in mind, and I'm looking for a particular looking movie poster for inspiration.

Ideally, it will feature a male character holding a book, or something the size/shape of a book, so anything from a bible to a tablet.

I'm looking for something in either a retro style, or B-movie/monster era, something very stylish. It will also be reasonably well known, too. I have a few folders of movie posters, and some are very cool but hardly anyone would have heard of them. I kinda like the 60s look, some of the Bond movies, Breakfast At Tiffanys, Hitchcock, probably nothing later than 1970.

And no goofy comedies :-)

Thanks in advance. I'm looking forward to what the experts can dig up for me!

Hi Nightofjoy and welcome to the Forum. How about the Russian poster for Judgement at Nuremberg (1961)?

 welcome2.gif to the forum, nightofjoy. Glad to have you.

Enjoy it, and hopefully, you'll find the poster that your looking for, and that suits what its needed for.

Another thought, re your book/tablet poster, since you mentioned you wanted nothing that was post-1970:

Just re-post your pics here, and the others can be deleted from the other thread.

nightofjoy is also looking for posters/movies that are 1970 (at the latest) or earlier. (see his poster specs in his first post). ;)

Well until nightofjoy disqualifies my second entry - here is the Czech poster for Name Of The Rose (1986).

As am I.

Very impressed.  But, this is just the sort of random, left of field question the people here would excel at answering.
