Death on the Run


Death on the Run is a collection of articles about Italian Western Films and their political subtext, published on the occasion of a retrospective curated by John Cunningham and Luisa Lorenza Corna. For the cover we avoided iconic film stills associated to the genre, instead opting for a magnified picture of a dynamite explosion, which epitomises the spectacular and sudden violence of the films. Inside, we display images of scenes of coercion and sufferance, key themes in most of the essays included in the publication. Decorative elements and colours are kept to a minimum, to give prominence to the gestures and the actions portrayed in the film stills selected.
