— THE SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE

THE TITLES SAY IT ALL.

I’ve been sitting on this on this link a while, and it’s great to re-discover it, as this collection is truly a labour of love. Simply titled the Movie Stills Collection, it’s aim is to catalogue as many classic and iconic opening title screens from the cinemas (both Hollywood and Foreign) that they can. Chronicled by decade, they reveal themselves to be a testament to enduring power of film to stir out collective emotions right from the very first frame. But maybe just as importantly, show not only an evolution of graphic styles through each decade (including the most awesome collection of type styles I’ve seen in a while). The Movie Stills Collection is a love letter to the role of the art director in film. The names may not be familiar to many outside the design industry, but the work of Saul Bass, Maurice Binder, but their graphic legacy is huge. Check out the whole collection here.
