Saul Bass-a No-No!

This weekend, I was cruising on the APF and came across this intriguing Saul Bass article posted by Big Mel at the MPC.

The article basically touts the work of Christian Annyas, a Dutch graphic designer, who has cleverly documented how modern DVD covers have eliminated the precious past movie posters of Saul Bass since the studios assume most potential customers don’t have the time or interest to reflect on the artwork of the original poster (which is illustrated below in these beloved Bass before and awful non-Bass after shots).

Shades!

And two more interior design movie posters…The tantalizing Love In The Afternoon (by Saul Bass) and the French version of The L-Shaped Room (Georges Kerfyser).
