Highly Recommended. Foreword by Francis Ford Coppola. When Edward Hopper meets Drew Struzan: the long awaited first monograph of Laurent Durieux. This Belgian illustrator is well known by pop culture fans for his cult movie poster remakes. They’re freqently better than the originals, and certainly more authentic! The book includes a 6 page section of unpublished poster art. “…takes poster art to a high level. The images, which are stunningly executed, express ideas and themes of the movies he has chosen in new terms. They communicate much without words, and stand alongside the wonderful tradition of illustrative art.” Cernunnos, 2020.

Description

When Edward Hopper meets Drew Struzan: the long awaited first monograph of Laurent Durieux. This Belgian illustrator is well known by pop culture fans for his cult movie poster remakes. They’re freqently better than the originals, and certainly more authentic! The book includes a 6 page section of unpublished poster art. “…takes poster art to a high level. The images, which are stunningly executed, express ideas and themes of the movies he has chosen in new terms. They communicate much without words, and stand alongside the wonderful tradition of illustrative art.”

Those are the words of filmmaker and Durieux collector Francis Ford Coppola. Now there’s an endorsement.

Laurent Durieux is a celebrated illustrator and graphic artist from Brussels, responsible for delightful and stunning new versions of film poster art, such as a 2013 poster of JAWS, which also caught the eye of Steven Spielberg. “His unique style is immediately recognizable, and spans both classics and modern cinema alike.”

“Durieux has produced evocative artwork for Francis Ford Coppola classics in the past like THE GODFATHER trilogy and THE CONVERSATION.” – Mondo Gallery

He’s also done wonderful homages to Labyrinth, Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Gone With the Wind, The Tree of Life, Days of Heaven, The Graduate, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Conversation, The Deer Hunter…

In French and English both. We really like these wonderful retro drawings of times past, allowing you to experience each film in an entirely new way, as Coppola also points out. It even gave him a new take on his own Godfather series.
