This month Assouline Presents "Cinema On Paper: The Graphic Genius Of Movie Posters".

Assouline publishing was founded in 1994 by Prosper and Martine Assouline. It is home to more than 1500 bespoke published titles in Art, Design, Fashion, Lifestyle, and Photography, and it's opulent store Maison Assouline (in Central London) displays these magnificent collector pieces.


They return to share the private collection of rarely produced film posters with their newest release: Cinema On Paper: The Graphic Genius Of Movie by Dwight Cleveland.

Comprising of more than 100 works, this title places each poster side by side to illustrate differences in cultural viewpoint through graphic expression, while providing insight into their detail.



Selected for their masterful design, these mass-produced hallmarks of the film include a variety of genres from comedies, musicals, Westerns, sci-fi thrillers, dramas, to other cinematic works that date from the turn of the 20th century to the early 2000s. Posters of iconic features, such as Casablanca, stand alongside foreign films and memorable cult classics including Le Samouraï and Barbarella. This title celebrates the artistry and excellence in each film poster, brought to you by the superior talent of a group of artists who perfectly captured a movie’s essence.


Dwight Cleveland began collecting film posters in 1977 when he was in high school, and eventually amassed the world’s largest fully curated archive, which he sold between 2016 and 2019. His personal collection now stands at about 4,500 items.
