Movie Posters as Art

I ran across the coolest Tumblr account the other day, devoted to all things Movie Posters.  Some of the more artsy ones were just so cool I had to share.

These are a few of my (very frame-able) favorites from the archives.

EDIT: Wah-waaaaah.  All the posters I featured here were moved.  Click over to the archives to check them out for yourself!

Edward Scissorhands

Being John Malkovich
A Christmas Story

Which is your favorite?

    ooh i love these! they are all kind of muted and retro!

  2. I once did a term paper on movie posters of the 20th century for one of my college art classes. Even as a poor student I couldn’t resist purchasing a couple of the resource books. They now sit on my coffee table and are remain a joy to page through. It’s one of my favorite modern art forms. Thanks for sharing the resource!

    These are great! I would love to have a few of these to hang as art! I love things that are personal while still looking cool. It’d be really cool to have a collection of posters from your favorite movies. How fun! Great find. =)

    I would never want a movie poster of a movie that scared me (haha, Planet of the Apes when I was little) or was too freaky (Fight Club, my roommates and I all watched this year and it was a collective wtf movie), but I love Edward Scissorhands and that poster. The Royal Tenebaums is cool too but I’ve never seen that one!
