Movie Posters: The Paintings of Batiste Madalena, the 1986 softcover illustrated book ("An appreciation by Anthony Slide"; with an introduction by Judith Katten) featuring mostly full-color and full-page images of the movie poster artwork of Batiste Madalena. Note that Batiste Madalena was commissioned between 1924 and 1928 by George Eastman of the Eastman Theater in Rochester, New York, to create a large series of custom painted 22" x 44" posters for movies including: The Ten Commandments, Son of the Sheik, The Lost World, The Freshman, and many more!
Artist: Batiste Madalena
Important Added Info: Note that we have pictured the front cover, the title page, and the interior page that shows the publishing information, and one or more interior 2-page spreads.

Condition: very good. On almost all examples of this book that I have seen, the spine has somewhat dried out, and there is separation at the spine when you open the book to some of the interior pages. However, this example of the book barely has this at all! It is in as nice condition an example as I have seen, which is unusual for this book.
