    Summary Of The Book

    Bollywood Posters is a compilation of Hindi movie posters over the decades. It is a collection that will delight the Hindi movie aficionado, as also those who are interested in tracing every aspect of the history of Bollywood in India.

    Movie posters are an ubiquitous feature in India. They are prominently displayed not just in theatres and hoardings, but also decorate the walls of private houses and public buildings. The colorful images, the scene depicted, the bold colors, and the text come together to impress themselves on the viewers’ memory and pique their curiosity.

    Bollywood Posters contains posters from the early decades of the 20th century to the first decade of the new millennium. Most of the posters are vintage hand-drawn editions rather than modern digital versions. The posters provide an interesting historical perspective into the Bombay film industry.

    Some of the posters have been spread over two pages. The collection is sure to be of special interest to collectors of movie-related memorabilia. The posters are organized according to film genres such as romance, action, and fantasy.

    Fast delivery but not happy with book condition.

    The book I ordered is a collectors book with Bollywood posters. The condition of the book is not good with one corner damaged and other corner bent because of packaging. I have taken snapshots of the book Incase you require to see condition. Not happy.

    You'll Enjoy it!

    I ordered it through flipkart together with other books though i got this a bit late than what flipkart promises but it ain't matte sometimes seeing their good service.

    this book is nice collection of posters specially if you are a poster lover of hand-drawn posters more than digital ones. as they are classic and have retro feel in them. it has much much more old movies posters as compared to new ones also we should keep in mind that this book was published in 2008 so it contains poster up ...

    This is a great book for any film lover, some great print quality and text material, it puts Indian cinema in a rarely-seen clarity and context. For this price it's a steal!
    The book has different sections like Crime, Romance, Fantasy. I especially loved the rare posters and films it documents in great detail.
