The Hershenson/Allen Archive is a collection of over 41,000 movie poster images available for lease. Other sources offer some of the same images (many "borrowed" from Bruce Hershenson books), but none offer them scanned at high resolution from high quality 4" by 5" color transparencies, every one of which is photographed directly from the original poster. When you have a product that deserves the very finest possible reproduction, see what the Hershenson-Allen Archive can do for you. If you are a writer, publisher, or video producer, our archive is a wonderful resource which can greatly improve your product with eye catching images. The archive does not sell reproductions to individuals. These images are solely provided to publishers of books and magazines, and manufacturers of videos and discs.
We have furnished hundreds of images for magazines such as Entertainment Weekly, newspapers such as The New York Times, books such as Time-Life Books, and even the U.S. Post Office. Whatever your need for full-color movie poster art, we can almost certainly help you.
About the history of this collection
The Hershenson-Allen Archive was formed in 1997 when Richard Allen
and Bruce Hershenson merged their collections of movie poster images. Both collections consist of
high quality 4" x 5" color transparencies, every one photographed directly from the original poster
and every one of them scanned at extremely high resolution (and available in a variety of digital
formats). Both collections were extensive and they complement each other. The combined archive
contains over 41,000 transparencies (with an additional 25,000 duplicate images), covering a high
percentage of all films known to exist.
In 1997, Hershenson and Allen realized they were duplicating each other's
efforts and joined forces. They combined their holdings into a single archive and since that date
have added over 10,000 newly acquired images to the combined archive. They envision this enlarged
record as a vehicle by which our motion picture heritage can forever be studied by scholars,
professionals, connoisseurs, and myriad other experts in film and media, art and graphic design,
communications, popular culture, social history, political science, etc.
To illustrate the vastness of the collection and the sophistication of storage, here are some images of the collection (click each one to see a larger image):
