To Tinseltown

The making of Robert Nippoldt’s Hollywood in the ’30s

Follow Robert Nippoldt on a silent movie journey from stardust dreams to bound and beautiful book, Hollywood in the '30s.

In this award winning publication, illustrator Nippoldt teams up with film critic Daniel Kothenschulte to pay homage to the makers and shapers of Tinseltown’s golden decade. With a suitably gilt and sparkling cover, the book combines Nippoldt’s signature illustration finesse with Kothenschulte’s expert research to profile the likes of Greta Garbo, Jean Harlow, Charlie Chaplin, and Humphrey Bogart, as well as to explore key stylistic and technical elements of the period, such as special effects, soundtracks, and the legendary Technicolor red.
