And if you’re into indie alt-rock posters, you might as well pick up his super cool Chronicle Books classic, Music Posters, too!
Even though it’s obviously a clever promo, CB has the wares to back it up. Over the past year, I’ve bragged ad nauseum about their awesome Art of the Modern Movie Poster (by Sam Sarowitz of Posteritati and Dave Kehr) — but they’ve also published a beautiful bounty of poster art books in the past, including The Star Wars Poster Book, Picture Show: Classic Movie Posters from the TCM Archives, Trash, Surf Movies Tonite!, and James Bond Movie Posters (which, unfortunately, is out of stock). And they’ve also released a few rockin’ art titles, too, like The Small Stakes: Music Posters and Gig Posters.
Plus, even if you don’t win the contest, they’re having a Friends & Family Sale through December 5, so just enter the promo code “FRIENDS” and you can get 35% off any books you choose…even non poster books such as The Art of Mcsweeney’s or The Projectionist, an intriguing new release about a small town movie theatre projectionist who once built a fully-functional miniature version of a grand movie palace in his basement. Sounds like a Charlie Kaufman movie waiting to happen!
So feel free to comment about your love of movie poster books and let’s win this sucker!
If you’re a fan of indie rock posters, then you’ve no doubt seen the simple elegant work of Jason Munn, creator of The Small Stakes. I would love to see what kind of print campaign this guy could come up with for a low-budg indie movie.
By the way, if you’re anywhere near Oakland, California tonight from 5-9 pm, he’s having a sale!
