Somewhere between advertising and illustration, film posters, like book jackets and record covers, inhabit that imaginative and atmospheric zone where one art reflects another.
It's not just the history of film or the history of film design, it's a history of twentieth century Saturday afternoons and Saturday nights.
How often we would go into the dark theatre armed only with the ideas and ideals of the posters outside, and then return to them afterward, perhaps with nodding affirmation or smirking disillusionment, but still a vision of what could be.

Horror Movie Posters
(The Illustrated History of Movies Through Posters, Vol 7)

Richard Allen, Bruce Hershenson

This review can easily apply to any of the books in the Bruce Hershenson edited series of film poster history.

Hershenson rightly treats film graphics not just as pop culture artifacts but true works of art.  His books are filled with a curator's eye for superior choice and reproduction, each poster in striking color and with a clarity of printing that rivals most any coffee table art book.
This series of books should be subtitiled: THE FINE ART OF ANTICIPATION, for no matter if expectation was filled or emptied by the films behind them, their posters kept on shining.
