An Evening with Tom Peak honoring Bob Peak:
Father of the Modern Hollywood Movie Poster

If you're not familiar with the work of Bob Peak, you need to join Bob’s son Tom at the Society this Friday. Tom will be showing never before seen work by his father which will be a part of a new book about the artist, The Art of Bob Peak. The book will include works spanning a forty year career in movie posters, advertising and his notable Time Magazine covers.

In 1961 Peak was named “Artist of the Year” by the Artist Guild of New York. In 1977 he was inducted into the prestigious New York Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame. In 1992 after over 100 Movie Campaigns including his iconic images for such films as, My Fair Lady, Camelot, Star Trek and Apocalypse Now, he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Hollywood Reporters for his contribution to the film industry.
