Here is a  stunning portfolio of movie poster artwork from the legendary American graphic designer and Academy-Award winning film-maker Saul Bass (May 8th 1920- April 25th 1996).During a forty year career, Bass produced some of the most iconic motion picture title sequences, film posters and corporate logos (including the Bell System logo: 1969) in pop culture history; who could forget the paper cut-out of  a heroin addict’s arm for Otto Preminger’s ” The Man With The Golden Arm”, or the skyscraper  shots for Hitchcock’s “North By Northwest”.Saul Bass has influenced so many – most recently in the “Mad Men” opening titles.Enjoy!
