    Illustration Magazine (2002 1st Series) 6

    This issue marks the beginning of a new format for Illustration. At 100 pages, perfect- bound and printed in full color, this new format more closely resembles a quality art book than a magazine. Ushering in our new era is a special issue-long profile on one of the most important and prolific illustrators of the late-20th century, Robert Peak. Peak completely revolutionized advertising in the film industry in the 1960s, and transformed the approach to movie advertising from basic collages of film stills or head shots to flamboyant artistic illustrations. His innovative poster design for West Side Story in 1961 ? painting characters and scenes into a single montage ? became the first of over 100 such posters, among them My Fair Lady, Camelot, Rollerball, Star Trek, Superman, and Apocalypse Now and earned Peak the title "Father of the Modern Movie Poster." Peak's 45 covers for Time Magazine (most notably the portrait of Mother Teresa), and numerous other commercial assignments redefined the look of illustration in the '60s and '70s, and influenced contemporary illustrators more than anyone since J.C. Leyendecker or Al Parker. No other book on Peak exists in print today, and this volume is essential for the library of any serious student of contemporary illustration art.
