The Life and Art of Bob Peak: Movie Posters, Commercial Art and MoreBy Diana Cook
Fans of movie posters, sports illustration and commercial art are in for a treat. A comprehensive oversized coffee table book on the Life and Art of Bob Peak will be available at the end of May, 2012. The book will include works spanning a forty year career with many never before seen illustrations along with his many iconic illustrations for the Movies, Major Periodicals, National Ad Campaigns, Time Magazine Covers, Fashion Advertising, Sports Advertising and more.
Bob Peak out in advertising in the early 1950’s in New York. He went on to become one of the most prolific illustrators of the 21st century. He has an incredible body of work. From the over 100 Movie Campaigns including posters for such films as, My Fair Lady, Camelot, Star Trek, and Apocalypse Now to his commercial illustrations for TWA to his many Time magazine covers, these iconic images are instantly recognizable.
We first wrote about Bob Peak last year when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hosted a retrospective of Peak’s work and pulled 70 of our favorite images for you to peruse. If you weren’t able to make it to Los Angeles to check out the exhibit, now you can experience his art through this over-sized coffee table book.
