The Artists - The Movie Posters of Richard Amsel

The Movie Posters of Richard Amsel

 

In recent blog posts we have written of our love of the art of illustrator Richard Amsel. If you haven’t had chance, please do check out our post on film-maker and author Adam McDaniel’s work to preserve and promote the work of this astonishing artist, taken from us far too early.

In a short but prolific career he illustrated magazine covers, album covers, and book covers. But it is his movie posters that we will focus on.

Like all commercial artists, he produced sketches, comprehensives and even final artworks that ultimately went unused. We have identified thirty-two Amsel movie posters that we believe made it to movies theatres / cinemas.

Have we got any wrong? Have we missed any? Over to you…

  • Fantastic work. I have “The Late Show” poster in my studio. Was an inspiration to me from his first TV Guide cover. Gone too soon.

  • Absolutely amazing! How could someone have such a gift and another person not?
