Where form meets function

Ira M. Resnick knows a bit about film. He is founder of Motion Picture Arts Gallery, a space dedicated to the art of the movies, and a trustee of the Film Society of Lincoln Center. This background makes him well suited to author Starstruck: Vintage Movie Posters from Classic Hollywood.

Releasing in mid-February from Abbeville Press, Starstruck guides readers through highlights of Resnick’s impressive personal collection. The posters date from 1912 to 1962 – representative of the “Golden Era” – and provide an overview of the film advertising industry.

Marin Scorsese provides the forward.
