Great Collection of Exploitation Film Posters


In case you did not know, I am a sucker for propaganda images. The Golden Age of Comics blog has recently posted  fantastic collection of posters from 1928-1968. In addition to getting a kick out of reading the titles and tag lines, some of the design choices are quite inspirational. Most of them come from a time when illustrators created the images without the sophisticated digital photography available today, nor software programs like Illustrator and Photoshop. Some of them are offensive because of sexist, racial or classist overtones, but looking at them in context as evidence of design, typography and drawing is quite satisfying.
