Titan Books, the great purveyor of impressive, hardback movie art books, is set to release Drew Struzan: Oeuvre on October 4th. What is it, you ask? Well, I'm no wordsmith, but I'm pretty sure "oeuvre" means "gorgeous, glossy coffee table book that contains over 250 works of art from cinema's greatest poster artist."
Of course, since this is a book celebrating the totality of Struzan's career, it does have considerably more than just his iconic posters. It also contains book and album covers, promotional artwork, stamps and even personal works all created by Struzan over the course of his long and highly influential career. If you're a fan of the man's talents, this is the definitive way to see his art. All of the images are stripped of their legalese and studio credits, allowing us to see past the words and straight to his beautiful art. And to show you what's in store for you, we've been offered the opportunity to share some of our favorite images from this vast, 320-page collection:
