For those of us of a certain age, we remember the delight of visiting the local video shop in the late 80’s and early 90’s and choosing movies based on their covers alone. More often than not the films themselves wouldn’t live up to the glorious artwork on the cover. VHS Video Cover Art from Publisher Schiffer is a gorgeous 264 page hard back coffee table style art book celebrating the video covers from the late eighties and early nineties. Just like the video shop shelves of our memories it’s absolutely packed with full colour front and back artworks of hundreds of classic (and not so classic) VHS Videos. These are pretty much to scale and are complete sleeves, from every genre, including action, comedy, thrillers, horror and sci-fi. The VHS artwork takes us back to a world of tanned muscle men, buxom beauties, big explosions, phallic guns, and nightmare-inducing monsters. There’s so many amazing covers in here you’ll come back to this book again and again. If you love amazing video cover art and need a reminder of how great it was to step inside a video store – please check out VHS Video Cover Art. For a brief glimpse inside please check out our preview book video above. Copies are available to buy online at Amazon UK and Amazon.com.
