Satyajit Ray Posters

Satyajit Ray transformed the face of Indian cinema with classics such as Pather Panchali and Days and Nights in the Forest. But before that, he was a graphic designer, and created his own groundbreaking posters, with which he distilled the themes and moods of his films into a single image – in effect, a paper trailer that was posted all over India’s streets. As an exhibition of Ray’s posters opens at BFI Southbank, London, here are a selection of his best. Via the Guardian.
