Hollywood: Paramount Pictures, 1965. Original silkscreen poster designed by legendary title and poster artist Saul Bass for the 1965 US film. Printed at the Art Krebs Screen Studios in Los Angeles, with a copy of the original receipt included.
Bass' initial design proposals were, in general, too radical for film studios to consider for advertisement, and were invariably altered to suit commercial needs. He produced silkscreens of his original designs himself in non-numbered editions of 50 to 200, with the receipt listing an order of 56 for this poster. These posters were then given to fellow artists, friends, museums, and design magazines, and never offered directly for sale by Bass.
25 x 39 inches. About Near Fine with light toning to the edges, a single tiny closed tear, and a small printing flaw to the upper right of the black background.
