Cold Mountain Screenplay & Promotional Poster

Cold Mountain is a Civil War drama that focuses on the entanglement of two separated lovers, Ada and Inman. Contrasted with the romance of the movie is the stark violence and reality of war, which I showed through the typography, inspired by Civil War era posters. The poster carries on the same idea that is used in the playbill, illustrating a powerful quote spoken by one of the main characters when she is wrought with frustration of where the war has left them.
