"Black Card" Poster References

Poster Art is a craft in and of itself and it's important to view what's come before when designing something new.

"Separate Cinema: The First 100 Years of Black Poster Art", by John Duke Kisch, has served as an important reference for Pete Chatmon's upcoming short film "Black Card".

Check out a few that stood out in this small deck that Pete put together for his team.
