— Breathless

A rather fabulous illustrated 1961 UK mini quad poster for Breathless, directed of course by Jean-Luc Godard (France, 1960).


The poster’s designer was Peter Strausfeld (1910-1980).

— Macbeth

There seems to be a lot of posters out there ahead of the release of the new film version of Macbeth starring Michael Fassbender.


I do like these two though.

— New Book Covers

Here’s a selection of fine new book cover designs. You can see considerably more across at The Casual Optimist.


The first is Unbuttoning America by Ardis Cameron; design by Kimberly Glyder; illustration by Al Moore (Cornell University Press / May 2015) 


For those too young to know, in the mid-sixties Peyton Place was a huge best selling novel in the States and one of the first seminal American TV series, and this new book taking a glance towards the phenomenon is likely to offer an interesting read.


You can see more of my own preferred cover designs after the jump:

— Blind

I don’t know much about this new Norwegian movie, but here’s the international poster for BLIND (directed by Eskil Vogt, 2014).


…I do find it somewhat intriguing.


The poster designer is Handverk

— The Danish Girl

Film posters for Tom Hooper’s new movie ‘The Danish Girl’.


…and, yes, the lead female actor is Eddie Redmayne.

— Zeit Magazine

Art from Marlene Dumas stars this weeks cover Zeit magazine from Germany


I love this cover concept by using two covers after each other (page 1 and page 3).


Zeit Magazin carries this concept each week and this creates an excellent opportunity to give more depth to their coverstories.
