I didn't want to go to sleep last night. I felt like it would be wasted hours. I ended up spending hours with this book, The Art of Noir by Eddie Muller. A beautiful book full of four- color images of vintage noir movie posters.

The book was originally published in 2004 so you know it must be pretty good to still be in print. You don't have to go looking for used copies.

If you have a love of film noir, vintage illustration and posters, hand lettering, oh heck...Joan Crawford, Humphrey Bogart, Ida Lupino, Dick Powell, Betty Davis, Ray Milland and on and on and on. Simply stunning sumptuous images.

I've put a link to the left in the Amazon column where you can see more images from the book. I add these below just to give you an idea of how stunning it is.

Time will pass and you'll find yourself lost in it. Each page brings a new and stunning piece of ephemera that fortunately was not destroyed as the theater owners had been originally told to do.

And don't think you're getting a small format book. This book is a very nice trim of 10.6" x 14.3", 271 pages. A coffee table book that should come with it's own table because you'll just want to leave it open so you can stand back and take it all in.
