Ciriello Movie Posters!

Although he is generally not mentioned in the same breath as the incredible Italian trio of BallesterCapitani-Martinati, it is without debate that fellow Italian artist, Averardo Ciriello, is right up there with the poster kings of design when you take a peek at his astonishing résumé of Hollywood classics.

My only guess is that the illustrator’s choice of doing girlie pin-ups for the Italian erotic comic book, Maghella, perhaps soiled his splendid reputation later in life. Whatever the case may be, his gorgeous work cannot be denied. (via MoviePosterDB)
