Cinema on Paper

by Dwight Cleveland

  • Hardcover
Comprising more than 100 works from one of the most prominent private collections of film posters in the world, Cinema on Paper: The Graphic Genius of Movie Posters is a tribute to the superior talent of an international group of artists whose creativity captured a movie's essence with arresting precision. Selected for their masterful design, these mass-produced hallmarks of the film business represent comedies, musicals, Westerns, sci-fi thrillers, dramas, and other cinematic works that date from the turn of the 20th century to the early 2000s. Posters of iconic features, such as Casablanca and The Godfather, stand alongside foreign films and memorable cult classics including Le Samouraï and Barbarella.

Luxuriously reproduced here for their iconic design and graphic excellence, these rare Hollywood- and foreign-produced posters are placed side by side to illustrate differences in cultural viewpoint through graphic expression and to provide insight into the depth and detail of poster design. A one-of-a-kind title among Assouline's roster of incredible books, this collectible volume is the first to bring the artistry of cinema posters to life by celebrating film posters not only as unique works of art, but also as cultural time capsules that reflect historic trends in design and popular culture.

Dwight Cleveland began collecting film posters in 1977, when he was a high school senior, and eventually amassed the world's largest fully curated archive, which he sold between 2016 and 2019. His personal collection now stands at about 4,500 items. He lives in Chicago, where he renovates single family homes and pursues his interest in historic preservation.

Steven Heller is co-chair of the SVA MFA Design program. Former Art Director for the New York Times Book Review, he has authored or co-authored over 180 books on graphic design and visual culture. He is the recipient of the 2011 Smithsonian National Design Award for "Design Mind."

Ben Mankiewicz is the primetime host of Turner Classic Movies. He is also a regular co-host for the online political show The Young Turks, co-founded with Cenk Uygur in 2002. Since 2015, Ben has hosted numerous nights of the International Documentary Association's Conversation Series, a career retrospective Q&A featuring the leading documentary filmmakers. In 2018 and 2019, he was host of the American Society of Cinematographers Awards.
