This Poster Turns Romantic Movies Into Constellations
If you're still looking for the perfect Valentine's Day gift, look no further than this collaboration between design studio Dorothy and the British Film Institute. Together, they've created The Love Star Chart, a poster that takes some of the greatest romantic movies of all time and arranges them as constellations in the sky. It's based on the night sky over New York City on the evening Casablanca premiered on November 26, 1942. The chart was designed to accompany BFI's LOVE Season at the Southbank, which took place late last year. The event offered online and in-theater screenings of movies related to love and heartbreak.
The poster features 74 films—and over 200 actors, directors, and producers—from the LOVE Season and scatters them like the stars in the sky. The movie pickings range from old classics like Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) to contemporary hits like The Fault in Our Stars (2014). The poster comes with a helpful alphabetical key to help you find each and every film.
If romance movies aren't your thing, you can also check out their other cinematic star charts: There's science fiction, horror, and Hollywood stars. You can view the whole collection here.
