Star Trek Reaches Its Peak?

Call me nostalgic, but I still prefer the 80s Star Trek posters by Bob Peak (top row) over these fancy, blurry, newfangled jobs! (IMP)

I’ll Be Damned!

Akiko Stehrenberger is going to hell — okay, just movie poster hell — but that’s a good thing, as her haunting new Kiss of the Damned one-sheet is sure to become a horror poster classic.

Part 90s Great Expectations, part 70s Bob Peak, Stehrenberger adapts the spirits of artists’ past to create something memorable. (IMP)

Bob Peak Back In Fashion?

Masters of Fashion Illustration, a new art book by fashion maven, David Downton (no relation to Downton Abbey), profiles some of the greatest fashion illustrators of the 20th Century — including a chapter dedicated to legendary poster artist, Bob Peak, who first penciled his beautiful lines for many high-profile fashion mags and commercial print ads.

Twisted Fates?

Sneak Peak

ImpAwards has all the info if you want to pre-order a new movie poster book by 60s and 70s design icon, Bob Peak

Solid Gold!

Bill Gold Advertising is undoubtedly one of the most successful poster design companies in the history of the movie business. This New Yorker was chiefly known for his productive relationships with Bob Peak and Clint Eastwood, with whom he worked with for over 30 years of his movies.

Speaking of Clint, there’s an excellent book out now called Clint Eastwood Icon: The Essential Film Art Collection
