The Birds


I found this in a Gawker story about movie posters:

While I like it, and it's certainly very fresh, I keep looking for something in that feather silhouette - like maybe the edges are suppposed to be bird beaks...is there something I'm not seeing? It doesn't seem like it was made in the 60s, even though it's got that Saul Bass vibe...where did this come from?

I'm sure this is from a screen printing design competition I saw some where and was never an actual poster for the film. I just cant think where I saw it.

Thanks, Tom. That makes sense.

I saw this a while back on flickr:

Now Showing

I believe it was a group show based on classic films

In the larger print of this, all the red is made from drops of blood. So the inlets of the feather are actually drips. It's impossible to see in a small jpg.
