About the Jon Robert Shaps Autograph Collection
Note that this item and 56 others were consigned to us by the brother of Jon Robert Shaps, a celebrity photographer in the 1970s and 1980s. This is a truly remarkable collection of signed items! We have created a webpage explaining who Jon Robert Shaps was and how he acquired this collection, and we urge you to view that page at this link. The page also has images of Mr. Shaps with 29 celebrities he photographed, and also an image of an appraisal of these items done in 1991, after Mr. Shaps' untimely passing. The phrase "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" is certainly overused, but it seems to be very appropriate in the case of the auction of these 57 items!
Condition: good. The poster was framed by someone who had no clue what they were doing, and they glued it to a mat with a glue that darkened the poster where the glue was applied to the back! When our consignor realized what had happened, he removed the poster from the backing, but it now has much scattered light staining in areas where the glue had been. Fortunately, the staining is not on Kubrick's signature, and it primarily shows in scattered parts of the white background areas. I would think that a talented restorer could surely greatly lessen the staining through chemical means (without harming the autograph at all), and that any residue staining could be covered with paint restoration, after which this poster will look incredible, but please bear the above in mind before placing a bid on this poster!
