The Art of Noir: The Posters and Graphics from the Classic Era of Film Noir

Film noir is all about style, even more than it is about crime. The poster art from the noir era has a bold look and an iconography all its own. During noir's golden age, studios commissioned these arresting illustrations for even the lowliest "B" thriller. The Art of Noir is the first book to present this striking artwork in a lavishly produced, large-format, full-color volume. The more than 300 dazzling posters and other promotional material range from the classics to rare archive films such as The Devil Thumbs a Ride and Blonde Kiss. With rare offerings from around the world and background information on the illustrators, The Art of Noir is the ultimate companion for movie buffs and collectors, as well as artists and designers.

Eddie Muller

Eddie Muller is a writer based in San Francisco. He is known for writing books about movies, particularly film noir. Founder and president of the Film Noir Foundation, he is considered a noir expert and is called on to write and talk about the film genre, notably on wry commentary tracks for Fox's film noir series of DVDs. Novelist James Ellroy has dubbed him "The Tsar of Noir".

Muller is the son of a famed San Francisco boxing writer of the same name, whom he used as the basis for the character of Billy Nichols in his period crime novel "The Distance", which was named the Best First Novel of 2002 by the Private Eye Writers of America. Billy Nichols returned in the 2003 novel "Shadow Boxer".
