Film noir is all about style, even more than it is about crime. The poster art from the noir era has a bold look and an iconography all of its own. During noirs golden age, studios commissioned these arresting illustrations for even the lowliest B thriller. The Art of Noir is the first book to present this striking artwork in a lavishly produced, large-format, full-colour volume. The more than 350 dazzling posters and other promotional materials range from the classics to rare archive films such as The Devil Thumbs a Ride and Blonde Kiss. With a new afterword, rare posters from around the world and background information on the illustrators, The Art of Noir is the ultimate companion for movie buffs and collectors, as well as artists and designers.

Review:

If any collection of pictures that dont move can be said to capture the essential spirit of noir, The Art of Noir does --Los Angeles Times

To look at these movie posters is to glimpse a world of passionate intensity, of mingling desperation, loneliness, erotic obsession and greed --Washington Post
