the spirit of the times
One of our nearest and dearest neighbors, Posteritati is always on our minds (because we’re lusting after their latest acquisitions). And we’re not the only ones - The Village Voice, NYT Style Magazine, and Vanity Fair (among others) have covered this amazing SoHo treasure.
At the time of this writing, the store is doing a spotlight on sci-fi posters. We’re in love with an Argentinian Empire Strikes Back poster they have up, and one of us couldn’t stop herself from picking up this trippy Japanese Alien poster a little while back.
You can see some of the posters on display in our pics here, but the Posteritati catalog is WAY more expansive than what’s on the walls.
We also like that they have a candy bowl, seen above on the coffee table.
The staff are really cool about pulling out posters for you to get a closer look!
You can search through the entire Posteritati collection on their site or in store (by genre, director, star, or keyword) on one of those computers you see above… or you can ask owner Sam Sarowitz - a veritable scholar of movie poster history/art, with several BEAUTIFUL books to his name.
If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by - you won’t want to leave.
An On The Street of Bill, On the Street.
Devoted fans of Bill Cunningham have sent in, via Twitter and Facebook, tons and tons of pictures of Bill on the street (shot as discreetly as the man himself does), shooting “On the Street.” The pictures were so wonderful, we wanted to do something with them, but didn’t know the best way to present them. And as usual, taking a hint from Bill did the trick. Adrian Curry, designer of the original Bill Cunningham New York poster, put together this lovely layout for us.
A huge thank you to all the wonderful followers, friends and fans who sent these in! We had so many great choices we couldn’t possibly showcase them all, so follow the film’s Twitter for lots of viewer-submitted pictures of Bill on the go.
Middle of the week got you feeling a bit “blah?” Here’s a smattering of things we love to get you through til Fun Friday!
We are thrilled, beloved Tumblr-ers, that YOU are the first to see the brand new poster for our upcoming film The Salt of Life! This version is adapted from the original UK design by LaBoca, who also did Mid-August Lunch and those amazing posters for a little film called Black Swan.
Stay tuned for more information in the coming months about this hilarious new film from Gianni Di Gregorio.
We couldn’t help but notice the (definitely, definitely coincidental) similarity between the new poster for the Grand Prix bio-doc Senna and our own 2010 poster for Laura Poitras’s The Oath, a documentary about Osama bin Laden’s bodyguard. The tagline structures match up nicely, too!
