Type: Books

Classic Italian film poster art is renowned as being among the most accomplished, creative and dynamic of its kind. From the post-war period through to the 1980s, Italian artists consistently produced posters with sumptuously stunning designs and imagery - not least in the horror and giallo genres, for which compositions almost invariably included curvaceous female figures in jeopardy, juxtaposed with the iconography of blood and terror.

Crypt of Carnal Terrors is a book volume that showcases 100 classic artworks crafted for film posters by a wide range of acclaimed Italian artists, created for both indigenous and foreign-language film productions. Classic horror and giallo scenes figure in full-color, full-page images highlighting some of the world's most innovative and seductive movie poster art.
