Saul Bass posters

Saul Bass (1920-1996) was an acclaimed graphic designer, who designed film titles and film posters. Film.Com recently published a collection of "every significant movie poster Saul Bass ever designed." 

And, no, he didn't design the West Side Story poster, though he is often falsely credited with that one.

Such Good Friends (1971)

Great collection! Love the MAGNIFICENT SEVEN one with the hashmarks.

Writing is less and less important on posters, isn't it? You have to strain to read the details.
