John Alvin’s wife Andrea details the impact of John Alvin which is amazing captured in the new book: The Art of John Alvin.

john alvin book coverDescribed as “Hollywood’s best kept secret,” Andrea reveals the shocking truth about her husband’s career and work: “His art is iconic and at the same time tells a story.”

Several of the great Steven Spielberg films are featured, especially Jurassic Park and the countless concept posters created.

“He could come up with an idea for a poster, design the logo, and write the copy line,” Andrea writes of John’s talent. The iconic Belle and Beast dancing on the Beauty and the Beast one sheet, the blazing lightsaber on the Return of the Jedi poster or the impact of Harrison Ford’s Blade Runner image all bring forth very specific images in our mind’s eye.

We can thank John Alvin for that.

Movie after movie, The Art of John Alvin truly amazes as the resume of work is almost shocking: The Goonies, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Empire of the Sun, Gremlins and many, many more.

The commentary explores John’s process: the use of “heavy light” for Beauty and the Beast, working the billing and placement for the Batman franchise’s poster or the incredible Jurassic Park process, which is almost mesmerizing.
