On November 25th, the Criterion Collection will release the hotly anticipated new book, Criterion Designs. This book was teased at earlier this month on Instagram, and discussed in vague terms during the Wexner talk.

The book will feature over 300 pages of artwork from the various covers that have adorned the Criterion Collection releases over the past thirty years, including a gallery of every cover image, including the laserdisc releases.

From Criterion:


The most exciting names in design and illustration today apply their talents to some of the most important and influential films of all time. This volume gathers highlights from designs commissioned by the Criterion Collection, featuring covers, supplemental art, and never-before-seen sketches and concept art plus a gallery of every Criterion cover since the collection’s first laserdisc in 1984. From avant-garde experiments to big-budget blockbusters, cult favorites to the towering classics of world cinema, the depth and breadth of what film can be is on display in these striking images. Whether painstakingly faithful re-creations or bold re-imaginings, the stunningly diverse designs collected here offer new ways for cinephiles and design aficionados alike to engage with the world’s greatest filmmakers.


You can currently pre-order the book from Amazon.
