Film Posters of the 80's

Tony Nourmand, Author, Graham Marsh, Author Overlook Press $25 (128p) ISBN 978-1-58567-613-2
Flashdance, Fame, 9 1/2 Weeks, The Right Stuff, Top Gun, The Terminator-all are standard references when talking about classic Hollywood films from the Reagan years. The proprietor of London's Reel Post Gallery, Nourmand here offers another ten-year stock taking (Film Posters of the 40s; Film Posters of the 50s; etc.), again with graphic designer Marsh as collaborator. Many of the 131 full-color illustrations are full-page (the book is 9 1/4 x 11 1/2); the reproductions are sharp enough to read almost all of the credits and fine print, though the colors could be brighter. For anyone who lived through the era, the images will seem familiar, so ubiquitous were they (and are now, in the video store aisles), so there are almost no surprises here.
