Copycat Movie Posters

Nobody copies like Hollywood and advertising. Put them together? Things get even worse.

But before you get too upset, remember what these posters are for: they’re a kind of visual shorthand for genre. The fact that they all look alike is, to the marketing department, a feature, not a bug.

The first thing I learned as a librarian: you can judge a book by its cover, or at least its genre.

Yes, commodification of dissent and all that, but these Mai ‘68 posters are beautiful, and there’s a book of them coming out.

Book looks rad. Also? You should follow jndevereux
