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.

Layout | Minimalist Star Wars Posters

I love these minimalist Star Wars posters by Travis English. Check out his tumblr site for more posters such as Dr Who and Harry Potter. Just like the movies, the posters for the original trilogy are probably the best. The posters use simple silhouette illustrations of key locations and protagonists for each film. View other nice Star Wars posters here, here and here.

Steven Hill’s Movie Title Screens Page is a great resource for viewing old movie titles, and how they have changed, as well as some great pieces of custom typography and layout. Here are some excellent vintage ones from 1900-1950.

Layout | Penguin James Bond Book Covers

An excellent series of Penguin James Bond book covers from 2008 to celebrate the centenary of Iam Fleming’s birth. The covers are in the style of the opening credits to the Bond movies, with great custom typography overlaid on sexy images of bond girls.
