Struzan's movie poster work exceeds the iconic (Harry Potter, Back to the Future, Blade Runner, Star Wars, Indiana Jones ...). Reading about his professional career and seeing both examples of his work (and the variety of evolutionary steps in each piece) is endlessly fascinating.

The tale, though, is a sad one, as Struzan's career progresses but the creative environment in Hollywood changes. Ultimately, he's designing gorgeous work that stars and directors love but the studios decide to kick to the curb for their own aesthetic / commercial purposes. That Struzan has retired because of that is a loss to both art and to the movies.

Recommended to anyone who loves the movies, or commercial art.
