Strausfeld's Linocut Cinema Posters

Poster by Peter Strausfeld

During World War II, George Hoellering, director of London's Academy Cinema, was interned in the Isle of Man where he met the artist Peter Strausfeld. After the war, Hoellering invited Strausfeld to design posters for Academy Cinema, which he did until his death in 1980. All of the posters designed by Strausfeld were lino cuts or woodcuts.
