Classic Italian film poster art is renowned as being among the most accomplished, creative and dynamic of its kind. From the post-war period through to the 1980s, Italian artists consistently produced posters with sumptuously stunning designs and imagery - not least in the Western genre, where the invention of the "Spaghetti Western" gave abrasive new life to a dying form of cinematic narrative. ULTRA WILD WEST collects more than 85 film poster designs by a wide range of acclaimed Italian artists, in full-color, full-page reproductions showcasing some of the world's most innovative and eye-blasting graphic artwork, enhanced by rare production photographs which bring the book's total images to over 100.
