"The Art of Hammer: The Official Poster Collection From the Archive of Hammer Films is a great addition to your personal library, and one that should take up some room on your coffee table so it can entertain your guests. It's a celebration of the Hammer legacy, a time capsule that gives praise and serious study to an artform that no one suspected was an artform at the time of its creation." --Coming Attractions
"As many of the original pieces were destroyed by theaters after they were used, a book like this serves as an inexpensive way to look into the past and see how far the art of movie posters has come, or how far it has fallen.' - The Writer's Journey
