Anyway, I've recently been taken by French publicity brochures for old films. I've found several of these on eBay and they really are very nifty and cool. Typically, the front page is poster artwork for the film while the inside contains lots of nice pictures and a detailed plot synopsis.
I'm going to try to get my hands on more of these. In the meantime, here's a look at the French publicity brochures of two great Carroll Baker gialli - The Sweet Body of Deborah (1967) and So Sweet... So Perverse (1969):
The front page of the Sweet Body of Deborah brochure with striking yellow colors - quite appropriate for a giallo.
The inside of the brochure: more yellow, plot synopsis and a delightful collage of images from the film. Great stuff!
