Film on Paper is an archive of original film posters lovingly put together and featuring the collection of one Eddie Shannon. The shear effort alone should be commended but dig a little deeper and you’ll discover a beautiful and incredibly detailed catalogue. Eddie’s website is also a joy to mooch around and if you find yourself with a spare few hours then do yourself a favour and check it out.
Above and below are a few of my favourites but to be honest there are far too many to choose from.
One particular poster I had forgotten about, but was so happy to see is the teaser poster for the original Ghostbusters movie, I can’t begin to tell you how many times I drew that logo as a kid, such an iconic 80’s classic.
And if that little lot wasn’t enough then you need to check out the Film on Paper blog. Here you’ll find a great little interview with illustrator Tyler Stout, famed for his illustrative poster interpretations of iconic films. Eddie and Tyler discuss his interpretation of the classic film Akira which is amazeballz which ever way you look at it. Enjoy
