The art of Richard Amsel

A delightfully nostalgic collection of Richard Amsel's TV Guide covers and movie posters. His work is only partially represented at the links, but it will remind you of how iconic his work was to the 60's and 70s. The images are much larger at the link. Enjoy.....

Found at Coudal Partners

Thank you so much for posting wonderful illustrations by Richard Amsel that I remember so well.

Just a slight correction though. Amsel's era was in the 70s and 80s, not the 60s and 70s. Richard Amsel would have only been 27 when the Lucy TV guide piece was published in 1974. (I stared at it for hours, as an 8 year old fan at the time.) It's considered an early work of his.

He broke into the mainstream soon after illustrating Bette Midler's debut album in the early 70s.
