turkish poster art

sapik a few days ago, we make money not art and boingboing linked to the turkish movie posters site, which is a great database of movie posters produced in turkey between 1960 and 1990. back then, the turkish movie industry preferred to have the posters for blockbusters adapted by turkish graphic designers, as it was cheaper.

although it deals solely with the evolution and production of the turkish melodrama poster, the movie posters section of eda noyan’s site provides a comprehensive background to the history of the turkish movie poster and gives information about the leading turkish poster designers, who also created the posters for foreign films.

back to turkposters site, i highly recommend the turkish vintage science fiction books section and the special section dedicated to cuneyt arkin, the unforgettable actor of the turkish cult movie.
