The films from Hammer Studios are legendary for so many reasons. Their style, their amazing regular actors, and even their marketing efforts are were amazing. For every one of their films, Hammer had incredibly eye catching art work made up into a poster. The results are timeless evocative works of pop art that are often as well known as the films they were advertising. Many of these posters have been reprinted and made available, while others have become nearly impossible to find. Well if you want to appreciate these posters you now have an alternative to hunting them down individually. Titan books is releasing The Art of Hammer, which compiles nearly 300 examples of these advertising masterpieces, straight from the Hammer Archives. If you are a fan of Hammer or cinema advertisements, this is a must own book.
