You shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but if you judge the films by their posters on sale in Posteritati, you will have a positive first impression. Since the 1980s, owner Sam Sarowitz has been wheeling and dealing in the film poster business and over time he has accumulated more than just a keen eye for graphic design. His inventory boasts over 20,000 original movie posters from more than 30 countries, representing the collective national genius of (for instance) Japan and Poland. Of course there is a plethora of American classics here as well. Mr. Sarowitz has kindly provided three browsing stations in his store, complete with high stools and iMacs, that help fellow poster aficionados navigate his vast online database. Whether you're looking for rare posters of German horror films from the 30's or a more contemporary gothic depiction of The Addams Family, you can probably find it here. Careful: after browsing for an extended period you might need to run to the nearest cinema for a quick fix.Show lessRead more
