As you’ve perhaps noticed, we love to showcase the clever graphic artists who are revisiting classic films (from the distant and more recent past) and creating new posters with a more inventive bent than your typical studio one-sheet. The folks at Silver Screen Society have taken what they call a “book club” approach, selecting a film each month for their collective of designers and friends to take a crack at. The results are inventive, stimulating, and fun. It’s a fairly new site; they began in February, tackling 28 Days Later, followed by I Heart Huckabees in March, The Third Man in April, and O Brother, Where Art Thou? this month. We’ve selected some of our favorites after the jump; you can check out the growing collection on their Tumblr.
