Description

Bande Dessinee stylist Bruno (Tyler Cross, Lorna, Junk, Nemo) illustrates this comic book history of "The New Hollywood. From Easy Rider to Apocalypse Now." He renders iconic images of 1960s and 70s history and cinema: the Zapruder film, Roger Corman, Peckinpah, Altman, The Exorcist, The Searchers, Coppola, horror films, disaster movies, Scorsese, George Lucas....

From the publisher:

In the late 1960s a new generation of filmmakers took Hollywood by storm. Visionaries like Scorsese, Coppola, Altman, Peckinpah, Romero, and Cimino led cinema in a new direction, capturing the spirit of counterculturalism and the frustration created by the Vietnam War.

Perfect for film enthusiasts, history buffs, and anyone who has an interest in the "American New Wave" era of independent filmmaking.

The Little Book of Knowledge series has everything you could want to know about your favorite subjects, all wrapped in a convenient and attractive hardcover graphic novel. Written by experts in the field and drawn by fans who know the material, each Little Book is perfect for the established enthusiast and burgeoning amateur alike.
