International Bonds

With the world’s financial markets going into the toilet, now might be a good time to buy Bonds. That’s right — James Bond! Specifically, these International beauties from Italian designers, Giorgio Olivetti (top row) and Averardo Ciriello (bottom left), as well as French kingpin, Boris Grinsson (bottom right).

Silly Soccer Posters!

In honor of yesterday’s big win by the U.S. soccer team at The Womens World Cup, here’s a few silly soccer-themed movie posters from such great Italian artists as Averardo Ciriello (left) and Ezio Tarantelli (right).

(Btw, I tried, but couldn’t find any pre-70’s vintage movie posters featuring female soccer players!)

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)
