Review: 'PosterSpy: Alternative Movie Poster Collection' Artbook

If you follow this blog or if you follow me through the various social media networks I'm on like Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, then you'll probably guess that I have a big love for illustrated poster art - from the iconic movie poster art of artists like Drew Struzan, Bob Peak, Richard Amsel, and Renato Casaro, to the current crop of artists inspired by these artists, and of classic and new movies.

The illustrated movie poster style doesn't seem to be as in demand as it has been in the past, if comparing the style of most modern movie posters that are used today, but 'PosterSpy: Alternative Movie Poster Collection', a collaboration between ARTtitude and PosterSpy, as the title implies, is a collection of variant poster art from artists all around the world, who have taken it upon themselves to keep the art of illustrated movie posters well and truly alive!

The 200+ pages in the book feature artwork from 58 artists, all from the PosterSpy art community, a website launched in 2014 showcasing the artwork of alternative poster artists, including many that I've also featured on this blog too.

The full list of artists in the book include:
Adam Cockerton, Adam McDaniel, Andrew Swainson, Andy Fairhurst, Arden Avett, Ben Turner, Chris Garofalo, CranioDsgn, Daniel Nash, Daniel Norris, Dave Stafford, Derek Eads, Doaly, Dres13, Edgar Ascensao, Felix Tindall, Freya Betts, Giuseppe Balestra, Harlan Elam, Ignacio RC, Javier Vera Lainez, Jeremy Wheeler, John Aslarona, John Keaveney, Josh Campbell, Joshua Kelly, Kevin Tiernan, Ladislas Chachignot, Laura Racero, Liam Brazier, Liza Shumskaya, Luke Butland, Mainger, Maria Suarez-Inclan, Matt Griffin, Matt Needle, Matt Talbot, Michael Friebe, Mike Gambriel, Mobokeh, Neil Davies, Peter Strain, Rafal Rola, Rich Davies, Robert Lockley, Salvador Anguiano, Sam Gilbey, Scott Saslow, Scott Woolston, SG Posters, Sharm Murugiah, Simon Carpenter, Simon Caruso, Simon Delart, Steven Key, The Dark Inker, Tom Fournier, Tsuchinoko, Viktor Hertz.

The range of films that are covered in the art book is diverse too. From more recognisable movies like Star Wars, Back To The Future, Alien and Blade Runner, to the more niche genre films like The Adventures Of Buckaroo Banzai, The Neon Demon, Videodrome and Midnight Special. But despite the number of movies covered, the quality of the artwork is certainly not diluted. Each artist is represented over at least a double page spread along with a quick bio written by themselves plus where to find them online.

The big thing for me that leaps out from the book is that the individual artistic styles of the artists featured are so varied. So as you turn through the pages, despite maybe seeing the same movie repeated on a poster on another page, the ideas and design of the poster are so wildly different from one another, that the talents of the artists that create them shines through on the page.

The book itself is a large sized (21cm x 29.7cm) softcover edition, and the 242 pages are thick and glossy, ideal for fawning over the pop culture eye candy that is printed on them in fine detail. The book is only in an initial print run of 1000 for £29.99 so be quick if you want to grab the book. Highly recommended if you are into alternative movie poster art.
