Barbarella - from our story 'RIP Bill Gold: The Extraordinary Movie Poster Master'

Barbarella poster from 1968. “The fragments are a design trick to give it something that is not the normal,” he said. “You would normally have boxes down the side show all the stills, but this has a bursting excitement to it, like something has blown up. Pieces seem to be flying off the center.
