Stylized Laurel & Hardy Poster

99 Laurel & Hardy

This poster, hon­or­ing the great­est com­e­dy duo of all time, was cre­at­ed by design­er and typog­ra­ph­er Chaz DeS­i­mone, who also cre­ates the titles for Joe Rinaudo’s film restora­tions. (He also designed the Silent Cin­e­ma Soci­ety logo and web­site.) Chaz takes great plea­sure and hon­or in design­ing for Joe, his best friend of over 50 years. He made sure this poster was extra-spe­cial, to the extent of con­sult­ing Joe about the exact hats Stan and Ollie wore.
