Illustrated Horror Film Posters

house

Well Medicated has a great list of 100 Illustrated Horror Film posters, many of which were quite frightening memories form my childhood. It’s fascinating to see the influence of fine art on film promotion and some lasting images and metaphors (see Road Games) that still hold strong today.

Twitter on Paper

The latest exercise in pointlessness (his hashtag, not mine) by Sam Potts of Sam Potts Inc. (my print doppleganger — the guy that designed the book covers for the guy whose site I designed). Twitter on Paper (or TOP) is the latest in anachronistic ephemera. New becomes old becomes new again. Passé becomes retro kitsch. And tweets become 4×6 mailed postcards (mine has yet to arrive). Take a look when you get a chance.
