Vintage movie poster designed by Josef Vyleťal for the Polish movie Peasants based on the novel by Wladyslav St. Reymont. Vyleťal’s design is based on a collage influenced by the Old Dutch masters’ paintings. The collage is used in a very playful manner. What seems as a very traditional image of some rural scene becomes once an eye comes closer, quite an intriguing collage composition.
