Ever since the advent of cinema, the theatrical poster has been a communicative form of art that has inspired artists and graphic designers to create timely and innovative work that didn’t always get the attention it deserved. With a collection that spans decades—and the world—film/art offers rare original film posters. A penetrating design that features a chilling still from the film, this poster was created for the U.S. release of John Cassavetes’s oh-so-tense The Killing of a Chinese Bookie.
Original “style A” poster for John Cassavetes’ The Killing of a Chinese Bookie, starring Ben Gazzara. Designed by Sam Shaw. Originally issued folded. Poster has been canvas-backed with restoration along the folds. Dimensions including canvas border are W 28.5" L 42". Unframed.
