The poster is Peter Strausfeld’s original poster for Wedding In Blood’s run at London’s Academy Cinema in 1973.

“Peter Strausfeld played an important part in the post-war British cinema culture as he was probably not only the last but also the most prolific ‘traditional’ cinema poster designer. For 33 years, from 1947 to 1980, his posters for the Academy Cinema in London could be seen in over 300 of the capital’s underground stations, advertising the very best in world cinema. Cinema posters, both then and now, relied on photographs from the film and typography. Peter’s approach was very different. For each one of his posters, he prepared a linocut of a striking image related to each film and set it on a bold single colour background. His posters reflected his interest in making art popular and accessible, especially as each underground station became his gallery.”
