Synopsis

THE AUTHORISED COLLECTION, WITH HUNDREDS OF HAMMER FILM POSTERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Hammer is almost as well known for the way it promoted its films as for the films themselves. The legendary British production company supported each new release with eye-catching posters that have become classics of their kind.

This is the first collection of these iconic posters, with nearly 300 examples drawn from Hammer’s own archive, and private collections worldwide. Some are well remembered, most are extremely rare.

The Art of Hammer is a testament to the company’s pioneering mastery of film promotion, and a celebration of movie art at its best.
