Celebrating the work of movie poster illustrator Bill Gold
A coffee table book looks at his creative process, which included work for Stanley Kubrick and Clint Eastwood films.

By Susan King, Los Angeles Times
December 31, 2010

Bill Gold was just 21 and a recent graduate in illustration and design from the Pratt Institute in New York when he was hired in the advertising department of Warner Bros. in New York City. His first poster was for the 1942 classic " Casablanca." Over the next 60 years, Gold was responsible for either designing or working with illustrators on about 2,000 motion pictures, including Elia Kazan's 1951 "A Streetcar Named Desire" and 1955's "East of Eden," Alfred Hitchcock's 1954 "Dial M for Murder," Stanley Kubrick's 1971 "A Clockwork Orange" and 1975's "Barry Lyndon," and 35 Clint Eastwood movies.

Gold, who turns 90 on Monday, is the subject of a lavish limited-edition coffee table book, "Bill Gold: PosterWorks," from Reel Art Press. Only 1,500 copies are available; it weighs 161/2 pounds and costs $650. It examines Gold's creative process and features his collection of unseen designs, alternative versions, sketches, drafts, notes, photographs and a treasure trove of iconic movie posters. The illustrator talked about his craft over the phone from his home in Connecticut. ...

He’s designed posters for films from “Casablanca” to all the Clint Eastwood pictures. Now, THR celebrates Bill Gold’s new book covering his six decades as one of the top movie advertising art designers in history.

 
Quote
For many, memories of working with him are as strong as the work: In the intro to Posterworks, Clint Eastwood wrote, “With Bill I knew he would bring great ideas, and the poster he created would be one less thing we had to think about. He respected the film, he respected the story, and he always respected what we were trying to accomplish.”

I'd be taking photos of my book. I wasn't sure if that would cause you copyright issues?

Thank you for posting the pictures Palooka.    I love the Pale Rider and the Unforgiven pictures.    I also like the High Plains Drifter with the paint brush.   I hope one day this book is published in a more affordable form.  :)

Thanks, Palooka! They look great. I'm glad they didn't use the Unforgiven one on the left, I don't like the woman's eyes in there with the men.
