Legends of the Silver Screen


by Owen Ashworth

An A5 collection of illustrations by Owen Ashworth, charting some of the best characters of cinema, past and present. This book compiles 112 portraits of Hollywood, European, and Independent film directors and their imagined signatures.

Think Lars Von Trier, Wes Anderson, Howard Hawks, Ang Lee, Martin Scorsese, David Lynch, Michael Haneke, Alfred Hitchcock and many others...

Owen Ashworth is mostly a musician. He has released countless marginally successful indie rock albums with his bands Casiotone For the Painfully Alone and Advance Base. This is his first book of drawings.
