'Silhouettes from Popular Culture' by Olly Moss came into my possession last October. I received a few comments from various people asking to see inside the book after I posted a picture of it on Instagram, so I decided today of all days would be as good a time as any! This simple yet beautifully presented hardback is overflowing with the somewhat lost Victorian art of silhouettes but these aren't the shadows of stern men and women with extravagant bonnets and top hats (well, some have top hats!) these silhouettes have a uniquely modern twist as the characters within this book are from films that span the more recent decades! Some are very easy to recognise whilst others are a little more obscure! (and some I just want to tear out and frame!)
There isn't an index of the characters included in the book so the name of the game is to guess as many as you can from your own movie knowledge, I couldn't possibly include every single silhouette in this post but I have included some of my favourites! Why don't you have a go at guessing them for yourself!
