The next issues of Little White Lies and Huck will look remarkably good on your newsagent's shelves: the magazines' covers are two parts of a single illustration by Geoff McFetridge...
The Church Of London, the creative agency founded by Rob Longworth, Danny Miller and Paul Willoughby, publishes, art directs and designs both film magazine Little White Lies and surf, skate and snowboarding style title, Huck.
The forthcoming issues feature Spike Jonze's Where The Wild Things Are in some way: the director is interviewed in Huck (hence he appears on the cover alonside some rather intrusive "wild things"), while Little White Lies is wholly dedicated to the new film, based on Maurice Sendak's children's book (main character, Max, features on their cover).
Ephemera Assemblyman has assemblyed quite a collection of movie posters from Ghana. In the words of his great blog...
"In the 1980s video cassette technology made it possible for “mobile cinema” operators in Ghana to travel from town to town and village to village creating temporary cinemas. The touring film group would create a theatre by hooking up a TV and VCR onto a portable generator and playing the films for the people to see.
In order to promote these showings, artists were hired to paint large posters of the films (usually on used canvas flour sacks). The artists were given the artistic freedom to paint the posters as they desired - often adding elements that weren’t in the actual films, or without even having seen the movies. When the posters were finished they were rolled up and taken on the road (note the heavy damages). The “mobile cinema” began to decline in the mid-nineties due to greater availability of television and video; as a result the painted film posters were substituted for less interesting/artistic posters produced on photocopied paper."
