Availability: In stock

Ever since the dawn of the 20th century, Hollywood has mythologized the American frontier—an untamed, rough-and-tumble land where a man could go as far as his wits, grit, and six-shooters at his hip could take him. From Stagecoach to Red River to The Wild Bunch to Unforgiven to The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, the Western genre has thrilled moviegoers with its dusty vistas, gruff heroes, brutal shootouts, moral quandaries, and metaphors for our modern times. And now, the movie posters of this quintessentially American genre are finally celebrated as the iconic fixtures of Americana they are.

Hang 'Em High collects more than 500 of the greatest Western movie posters ever made—each a dynamic masterpiece of graphic design. Collected in a luxurious oversized format and meticulously restored, these posters are presented in as sharp quality as they have ever been seen. Plus, this art book features the fascinating history of the Western, from its low-budget beginnings to its glorious peak as Hollywood's most popular genre. Tom Mix, John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, High NoonThe Magnificent SevenThe Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
