Saturday, September 13th
Even though it'll be 80 degress, you'll want to don your trenchcoat and fedora (or trilby), and head to the Fantagraphics Bookstore and Gallery for a bit of cinematic mystery. We will be unveiling our newest exhibition featuring posters from the gorgeous, oversized book, Film Noir 101: The 101 Best Film posters from the 1940s-1950s, and author, Mark Fertig will be joining our smoke filled den to present a slide show talk, and sign books.
No one will argue that noir films, and posters of cinema past were true works of art; capturing the subtle thrill of a riddle yet to be experienced. This handsome book with critical commentery from Fertig, and an introduction from director, William Friedkin (The Exorcist, Killer Joe).
The reception begins this Saturday at 6 pm, and the exhibition runs from September 13th-November 10th.
