That would make for a great cover for the book. Good job.

Really cool, although the font you chose really doesn't work, IMO.

I think it works moreso in the title area of the poster itself, but the text on the bottom is a bit distracting, plus having repeating on the bottom so prominently takes away from the impact that the font would have up in the title. it takes away from how unique the font is. I would go with something really simple, and maybe take down the size a bit. If it was me doing this, i would probably shoot for Century Gothic, or Georgia, both are interesting looking, but simple enough to not draw the eye.

all in all though, great poster.

I was going to post your exact sentiments. Good eye. When
I get around to it, im going to try out a simplified serif font or a sans serif like Futura.

Very cool. I love that movie, one of the few I can say is better than the book (which I also liked).

Century Gothic


I'm digging the Century Gothic one quite a bit. I see though, that the alignment doesn't look quite right with the sides of the poster. They probably actually line up, but with a san serif font like that, it can create the illusion of breaking that line. Personally, i would lower the fonts by a point or two, and adjust the kerning a little, but at this point its just nitpicking. If youre happy with it, i think you've got a good poster on your hands.

GET OUT OF MY MIND!!

yeah, the kerming is off and the small font of "Hugh" and the large font of "Nolan" throws off the balance.

As much as I like futura, gothic really looks good on this. Good call.
