A quick review of the work of Art Director and illustrator  Akiko Stehrenberger and one thing is clear, the golden age of the movie poster is now.

Whether it’s aping an old illustration vernacular or creating something new and fresh, these are prestige projects all around. Is there an Academy Award for for film poster design?
