Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice

Sometimes you find an original poster for a film which speaks volumes about the era in which it was made. This is one of those. Using the simple and unusual (at the time) device of a pattern made simply from the long title of the film is eye-catching. Using Cooper Black to do so is quintessentially of that era, so fashionable in 1969, but so completely out of fashion now. Despite the apparent modernity of a poster featuring a single sentence in a single typeface, this is far from minimal, and instead speaks to the brutally decorative designs styles typical of that time. I love it.
