Eva Galová-Vodrázková was born in 1940 and, after studying at the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague, designed numerous film posters between 1966 and 1972 (Terry Posters has forty-two of them on their site). She mixes photo-collage, bold typography, grids and lines, and her own faux-naïf illustration to arresting and very varied effect. Her work can be dynamic and pared-down as in her sports-oriented posters for Grand Prix and Boxer—two of her best—or pleasingly fussy, as in her poster for Killing the Devil which reminds me of the work of the great Japanese designer Tadanoori Yokoo. - Adrian Curry, published in Mubi on December 21st, 2012.
