Every month, when I trawl through the posters of recently released movies, I never know what I’ll find or how many will end up in a story. To review a poster, I need a hook, something interesting to write about, be it the design or the typography. I try to limit myself to about ten posters so as not to make ScreenFonts entries overly long. Because of this—very arbitrary—selection process, some beautiful designs end up on the cutting-room floor. From now on, I’ll publish these tasty “leftovers” in brief follow-up posts.
