of Claude Gaillard

Publisher : Omake Books
Language : French
Number of pages : 160 pages (hardback)

For the industry of the 7th art, the Western was a formidable playground, a laboratory authorizing technical innovations, but not only. The grammar of cinema, the structuring of its stories and its heroic figures, the taste of filmmakers and the public for parables: almost everything in cinema as we know it today refers us to this West as fantasized as it is wild. .

This volume of the collection The Visual Archives of Pop Culture retraces the crazy epic of the Western in more than 150 cinema posters, The Great Train Robbery At Django Unchained by Quentin Tarantino.

- Discover the most beautiful international posters of westerns (including French) both old and contemporary.

- The book covers both American westerns ( Dances with Wolves , The 7 mercenaries , the films of John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, John Ford...) and Italian westerns ( Once upon a time in the West , the saga of Trinita , the films of Sergio Leone...).

- The book also has some rarities: Taza, son of Cochise (in 3D!) (1954), Billy the kid VS. Dracula (1966), Jesse James meets Frankenstein's daughter (1966), The specialist (with Johnny Hallyday) (1969), The Brute, the colt and karate (1974), Blindman, the blind vigilante (with Ringo Starr (The Beatles)) (1971)...

- The last part of the book focuses on the legends of the West: Buffalo Bill, Billy The Kid, the Dalton brothers, Jesse James, Geronimo, Davy Crockett, Butch Cassidy, Belle Starr or even Calamity Jane!

- Both stunning and very dynamic, these posters are an amazing source for collectors.

- A book from the collection Les Archives de la Pop Culture (large format color artbook with hard cover)
