“Want to see something REALLY amazing?”
Then you mustn’t miss out on The Amazing Movie Posters of Thailand, a new Limited Edition volume from The Dark Side which is easily our most impressive book to date.
Spanning Thailand’s golden age of movie poster design – the 1960s, 70s and 80s – this first-of-its-kind book features over 500 seldom seen, hand-painted posters for films both familiar and unknown, produced by a small cabal of world-class yet unsung artists.
Authors Neil Pettigrew and Phil Jablon have researched this little-known area of movie history for many years, tracking down incredible art in the back streets of Southeast Asia and meeting the artists behind it to bring you this spectacular in-depth compilation of the most indulgent works of art ever created to advertise movies.
There’s never been a poster book as exciting or as controversial as this one. Get immersed in the blood-drenched, action-packed, lustful cinematic worlds these talents created accompanied by artist bios, illuminating commentary and a historical overview of the entire oeuvre. From Jaws to Star Wars, from Rambo to Bruce Lee, from Halloween to Nightmare on Elm Street, from James Bond to The Flying Witch Woman! All of your movie favourites are here, presented in a way you have never seen them before. There are also chapters on Hammer horrors, adult movies and films that are not for the squeamish!
We’re talking over 300 pages of superb eye-popping artwork, ushering you into a world of sensational Asian salesmanship you never knew existed.
This Limited Edition volume is available to pre-order right now, and we strongly advise you to place your order early because the print run is limited to very small numbers and once they’re gone, they’re gone. This is bound to become a much sought after collector’s item in the years to come, so don’t miss out!
PLEASE NOTE: Finished copies will now be mailed out in the middle of October. Printing was delayed through circumstances beyond our control.
