Layout | Vintage Movie Posters worth a bit of money

The Guardian has a collection of the 10 most expensive movie posters. Expensive not in production, but in the value of the physical poster to a collector. Most of these are great examples of vintage horror movie illustrations, but also include the beautiful Metropolis design. I love the custom type on these posters, and there are some great compositions and perspectives.
