(laminated boards; no dust jacket, as issued) [nice clean as-new copy]. (color facsimiles) Catalogue, in French, issued by a gallery specializing in film posters. The introductory note, translated from the French, reads in part: "Now a recognized collector's item, the original cinema poster is more and more present in our environment. The evolution of the market has made generalist collections impossible. The choices are made more and more precise, new themes are researched, and the artistic quality is taken into account. We offer in this book a choice of posters classified by genre, as a possible basis for thematic collections. Of course, this selection represents only a small part of the posters available." The book is 128 pages (including a full title index), and contains color reproductions of approximately 600 posters, primarily French (although many are for American films) and generally concentrated in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. (The latest-dated poster I found in a casual flip-through was from 1994, for PULP FICTION, although I'm assuming this catalogue was issued sometime in the 2000s.) This is a great mini-tour through French film poster art, although limited somewhat in total aesthetic pleasure due to the small size of the reproductions (generally 4 to 6 on a page, with only a handful of full-page images).
