While many might not be immediately familiar with the name Bill Gold, his work will be recognizable to just about any film enthusiast. The creative passed away yesterday at 97 years old, but his artwork lives one in his countless seminal film posters. The mind behind iconic movie posters for legendary films like A Clockwork Orange, Casablanca, Barbarella, The Exorcist and so many more, Gold’s work is diverse and shows he was a master of his trade. Along with quotes from the man himself (“I know what movie posters should look like, instinctively”), The Guardian has put together an overview of some of his best work. See more there.
