N.p. Cinema V, 1969. Original silkscreen poster designed by legendary title and poster artist Saul Bass for the US release of the 1968 French film "Alexandre le bienheaureux." Printed at the Art Krebs Screen Studios in Los Angeles, and used for the film's premiere at the legendary Cinema II Theater in New York City.
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. These posters were then given to fellow artists, friends, museums, and design magazines, and never offered directly for sale by Bass.
