An outstanding survey of Italy's finest films Apr 27, 2006
Italian cinema has produced some of the most amazing poster art on the market, and these all are a highlight in THE ART OF ITALIAN FILM POSTERS, a documentary of the best of these posters which packs in gorgeous full-page color displays throughout. The outstanding presentation provides an overview of Italy's fine films, pairing excellent historical and artistic text by Mel Bagshaw with over two hundred examples from the 20th century up to the late 1970s. Very highly recommended.
