Every time I’m at Faye’s Video (btw they’re not just about VHS tapes and employee film ratings, they make awesome espresso too) I notice the cover for Jaques Tati’s Trafic. I’ve never seen the film but the cover art is striking to say the least. I finally decided to look it up to get more info and came across this post at Balduin about the various versions of the poster for international release. While the cover is great, I was really blown away by the titles (second image), that’s got to be my favorite part. Now I’ll have to rent the DVD just so I can screenshot it and print it out.

From a design and concept point of view, you should check out Playtime ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Playtime ), Tati’s previous film. It had really cool, gigantic sets and cost a fortune to make. Shot in 70 mm. Flopped commercially yet the critics loved it.

The Criterion Collection has a really descent release. And the cover art from the Criterion Collection release is really nice.
