Sex sells! Since moving pictures were invented, nothing promotes a movie better than unashamedly sexual advertising. X-Rated Adult Movie Posters of the 60s and 70s is released this summer by Reel Art Press and features over 350 orgasmic posters, pressbooks and stills from the Golden Age of the X-rated movie – an inspiration for graphic designers and creatives alike, an invaluable time-capsule for historians, and an irresistible page-turner for everyone else.
The images are accompanied by witty and insightful text by Peter Doggett. He writes, “For connoisseurs of the film poster, porn cinema offers an alternative history of the 1960s and 1970s. Few people ever turned to exploitation movies in search of subtlety: the task of the X-rated graphic artist was to arouse urgent desires that could only be satisfied by a seat in the stalls. Their designs required no decoding.”
