No matter where in the world you were this weekend, hopefully you had a chance to check out the supermoon. And nobody liked to go full moon on their movie posters more than Steven Spielberg and ’80s poster design legend, John Alvin!
EatBrie, the humble home of Thierry Brame’s movie poster collection, is a feast for the eyes. The modest Brame will tell you that his bounty is no big deal, but don’t believe a word of it! Rumored to have the world’s largest stash of Spielberg one-sheets (aside from Mr. Spielberg, I’m sure), Brame’s website breaks down his posters into an easy searchable database by Actors/Actresses, Director, Genre, Country of Origin, Release Date — and, my personal favorite, Last 100 Purchases, where he shows off his most recent mouth-watering buys.
So if you have an insatiable appetite for movie posters, dig into EatBrie — and join his All Poster Forum!
There’s some fans out there who specialize in Polish movie posters or one-sheets of favorite actors/actresses (e.g., Sophia Loren, Clint Eastwood) — but can you imagine someone who only collects memorabilia from one single movie? Well, that’s just what Ari Kahan does — as The Swan Archives is dedicated to all merchandising related to the 70’s cult film, Phantom of the Paradise, a sci-fi rock/horror opera directed by Brian DePalma (two years before Carrie), and starring Paul Williams, the man who wrote Kermit The Frog’s opus, “The Rainbow Connection”.
