Book Review: Alternative Movie Posters 11: More Film Art From The Underground By Matthew Chojnacki

This is a book review of Alternative Movie Posters 11: More Film Art from the Underground By Matthew Chojnacki that was published by Schiffer Publishing on 25 November 2015.

Matthew Chojnaki is an award winning freelance writer and film/music historian. Matthew lives in Cleveland, Ohio. This is his third book.

This is the second volume of Alternative Movie Posters to be released and I think you could just keep on making more volumes there are so many movies which could be printed in a book like this.

In this book there are over 200 movie posters created by over 100 artists.

Each page contains an alternative movie poster for well known movies from classics to new releases such as Ghostbusters, Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, The Black Lagoon, The Matrix, Aliens, The Incredibles, and lots more.

There is behind the scenes information on the movies and actors on the bottom of each poster.

Some of the artists are new and emerging talents and others are returning favourites and more well known.

The art work is all a similar style of colour illustrations, they are interesting to look at and I think they've made their point about bringing old fashioned design back to movie posters.

This is a large book with the posters bigger than A4 pages - they would look fantastic framed and turned into wall art for a theatre room, games rooms, or even the man cave!

I really love this book, it's a keepsake, that most ages can relate to as you will have seen or heard of the movies in the book.

Seeing the movie posters created in a different way is really interesting and this is a fun, entertaining and unique book to have on your bookshelf.

I recommend this book to movie fans with an artistic eye - it can be used for home decorating or as a coffee table book.

I give this book 5 stars out of  5

Jarrah Jungle's Star Rating:
