12 Title Designs Criterion Love

Earlier today, boutique film phenom, The Criterion Collection, posted a gallery of 12 title designs they love taken from films within their collection. The gallery includes titles that have become famous in their own right, such as The 39 Steps, Anatomy of Murder and M. It’s a fun collection for film buffs and designers (especially film buffs that are designers). But before we get stuck into Criterion’s list, I thought I’d share my personal favourite title design first:

Ovoce Stromů Rajských Jíme (AKA Fruit of Paradise, directed by Věra Chytilová, 1969)
