My goal is to create a collection of all trailer titles from all commercially available Warner Bros. movies. I started with five pages, covering 25 years worth of trailer typography: from 1930 to 1954. I started with this era, simply because it’s the Golden Age of Trailer Title design. During the late 1950s designers started using existing typefaces, which made the designs less visually interesting. Which doesn’t mean you should visit these five pages and never come back… This is just the beginning. I’ll be adding more pages, with hopefully equally interesting typography or lettering.
