Vintage Egyptian Inspiration

I came across vintage Egyptian film posters dating back half a century and thought to share the inspiration. If you take into consideration the resources available at the time, I would personally say that the Egyptian artists back then were much more creative than the ones around nowadays. Not to take anything away from contemporary Egyptian artists, in the different fields, but no one can deny that modern film posters lack the necessary charm.

Looking for future trends and techniques is not always the answer. sometimes we can look back at our own history for new ideas. You can view a large collection of vintage Egyptian film posters at Kodak Agfa’s Flickr page.
