‘IT’S ART, WOMAN!’
Critics agree: Collecting smut posters makes you cultured
For Dad, porn meant shuffling in a cinema while trying not to
soil his raincoat. At least the posters were arty. A new book,
X-Rated Collection: Adult Movie Posters of
the 60s and 70s, collects 150 classics. FHM asked Tod Tarhan, the designer of posters for
Pulp Fiction and Swingers, for an appraisal.
‘This work is groundbreaking’, Tarhan confirms. ‘Indeed, it
has laid the foundations for many
mainstream posters of today’, So, if your girlfriend doesn’t like
them, that’s what to tell her.
