Availability and Pricing subject to change
The names and faces of Hollywood legend – Charlie Chaplin, Bette Davis, Bela Lugosi, Rita Hayworth, and more – return to their original glory with the Art of the Movies and Reel Scary Monsters collections. Created in collaboration with the American Film Institute’s 100 Years…100 American Movie Posters Classics, these collections were established in order to preserve this vital aspect of America’s movie heritage, while making the joy of collecting classic works of movie poster art accessible to millions of art lovers and movie fans throughout the world. Utilizing time-honored, hands-on lithographic techniques, the Art of the Movies collection recreates early film posters in exactly the same way they were created during the first half of the century – from painstakingly hand-drawn plates, slowly “pulled” one color at a time on extremely rare antique lithography presses. Many of these film posters were designed by some of the most famous and talented artists and illustrators of their day; masters such as Norman Rockwell, James Montgomery Flagg, John Held Jr., Thomas Hart Benton, Al Hirschfeld, and Bob Peak.
