Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 95 pages. Published in 1979. Pioneering collection on subject. One of the most important titles on the art of the film poster. The first and only edition. Published simultaneously with the Hardcover as a Softcover original. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by The Etheredges: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Collection of film posters and text by Steve Schapiro, with the assistance of David Chierichetti. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Steve Schapiro's and David Chierichetti's "The Movie Poster Book". The single best introduction to the "film poster genre", as it was realized during cinema's Golden Age. The posters are like a history of film itself since they cover the period 1896 to 1955, when some of the greatest masterpieces and most popular films were made. "Admired for their strong use of graphics, their brilliant colors, and the sense of history they impart. Posters mirror eighty years of change in society, dress, and concepts of beauty" (Publisher's blurb). Schapiro's collection, the world's largest at one point, includes virtually all the classics, from Sergei Eisenstein's "Potemkin" to Fritz Lang's "Metropolis" to the films of Charlie Chaplin, Marlene Dietrich, and Fred Astaire, among numerous others. When Steve Schapiro began collecting film posters, the form was considered as nothing more than publicity material, ephemeral, quickly forgotten, and discarded. One of the finest living American photographers whose debut collection, "American Edge", has been compared to the work of Walker Evans, Robert Frank, and Diane Arbus, Schapiro has also been one of the most successful film-poster photographers ever. His work in this vein includes such classics as Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffmann in "Midnight Cowboy", Barbra Streisand in "A Star Is Born", and the classic shot of a pensive Al Pacino in "The Godfather", among other notable examples. His most recent work has been for Oliver Stone's "Alexander" (with Colin Farrell). In a recent profile, the great film director Martin Scorsese spoke of his own poster collection as his most prized possession. The film poster collectible market has exploded in a way that has made the pioneers shake their heads in sheer disbelief. Some of the most valuable pieces are in this great and deeply enjoyable collection. An absolute "must-have" title for Steve Schapiro and film aficionados/collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and dated (in the year of publication) in black pen-marker by the author/photographer: "Steve Schapiro '79". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a collectible classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and dated copy of the First Softcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 100 color plates. One of the finest American photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER STEVE SCHAPIRO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 052547501X.
