Please join us on Wednesday 20 September at 1pm UK time for TenderChats, our ongoing series of live conversations. We invite Patrick Fry, publisher from CentreCentre to discuss the newly released publication Moving Pictures Painted. 200 Posters from the Golden Age of Egyptian Cinema.
Moving Pictures Painted celebrates a tradition of hand created Egyptian cinema posters made using the stone litho technique. The book documents 200 posters made between 1938 and 1996. These posters are beautiful, highly accomplished and full of unexpected style, but also represent a national industry often overlooked by the west, Egyptian cinema should be recognised for it’s ground breaking and influential history.
TenderChats is an ongoing series of 30-minute musings on the magic and permanence of printed matter. A twice-monthly series of live conversations will be hosted by writer and publisher Dal Chodha on Instagram TV @tenderbooks.
