Extreme Canvas: Movie Poster Paintings from Ghana

Ernie Wolfe, III, Editor, John Yau, Essay by, Roy Sieber, Essay by Dilettante Press $75 (296p) ISBN 978-0-9664272-1-9
""Just as British television dramas are culturally repackaged for American audiences, so the hand-painted movie posters serve to claim the movies for the people of West Africa,"" writes one of many contributors to Extreme Canvas: Hand-Painted Movie Poster from Ghana. Edited by Los Angeles gallerist Ernie Wolfe III, the book includes 350 colorful, highly stylized illustrations for everything from ""Children of the Corn 3"" to ""6 Lovers of Melody"" (with a disproportionate number of action and other horror flicks in between) by artists such as Alex Nkrumah-Boateng, D.A. ""Bright"" Obens and Kofi Kuwirnu, all of whom contribute photos and biographical notes. John Yau, LeVar Burton, Clive Barker, Anjelica Huston and Gus Van Sant, among others, provide critical essays and commentary. ( July)
