Nearly 100 emerging artists, with a dozen returning favorites, present their newly-produced images. Cinematic visual masters Jason Edmiston, Gary Pullin, Akiko Stehrenberger, Randy Ortiz, Brandon Schaefer, Gabz, Dave Perillo, Chris Garofalo, Anthony Petrie, Godmachine, Tracie Ching, Clark Orr, Orlando Arocena, Steve Dressler, Paul Shipper, Tom Hodge, Luke Insect, and more additionally provide commentary and behind-the-scenes information.
Movies illustrated include classics like Vertigo, Rosemary’s Baby, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, more recent hits such as Her and Drive, cult favorites Dazed and Confused and Donnie Darko, and childhood staples Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, and Labyrinth.
This is the third book by Chojnacki, an award-winning freelance writer and film/music historian, whose first was the ’80s vinyl cover art compendium “Put the Needle on the Record.”
