Simply JAWS

Since we’re into the art of posters for the moment, here’s a question to ponder.  What’s Spielberg’s best film?  Easy, it’s JAWS (1975).  And why?  Easy, because he collaborated on it.  It was a fantastic group effort, never to be repeated and never equalled.  Acting, design, music, script  – all faultless.

Also it has one of the greatest poster designs ever – from artist Roger Kastel.  Below are 3 stages in the design process – from original book cover, to sketch to final theatrical poster artwork.  Simply masterful.
