This visually stunning volume-the first movie poster book devoted exclusively to independent films-showcases some of the most provocative and original movie posters ever created. From David Lynch's cult classic Eraserhead to Sofia Coppola's recent sensation Lost in Translation, the book displays the incredible range of creativity exhibited in hundreds of independent film posters.

More than 100 internationally recognized directors are profiled-including Quentin Tarantino, Spike Lee, the Coen brothers, Jean-Luc Godard, and Pedro Almodóvar, to name a few. In his text, Dave Kehr, an entertainment writer, most notably for The New York Times, captures the creative excitement of independent films and their growing importance to the global cultural scene. Drawing on the rich and diverse collection of the Posteritati Gallery in New York, one of the premier dealers in vintage and contemporary movie art, this is an essential sourcebook on the independent film movement and the feature films, documentaries, and directors that have shaped the face of its history. AUTHOR BIO: Spencer Drate and Judith Salavetz have designed packages for many popular artists, including Bon Jovi, Lou Reed, U2, and Talking Heads. Drate was the author of Abrams' Swag: Rock Posters of the '90s . Dave Kehr, of Italian Film Posters, has written about movies for The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, and the Chicago Tribune.
