Titan Books is releasing The Art of John Alvin, written by Andrea Alvin, in a couple weeks.

Here's the official description:

John Alvin's movie poster art is among the most iconic of the last 40 years, from Disney films such as Beauty and the Beast, Mulan and Pinocchio, to Empire of the Sun, Gremlins, Blazing Saddles, Predator, and the Star Wars 30th anniversary posters.

This book not only collects some of Alvin's finest work, but also includes previously unseen comprehensives and in progress sketches. With the text including commentary from Alvin's widow, this is a unique insight into the work of one of the 20th century's great artist/illustrators.
