If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.

Condition: very good to fine. The poster is linenbacked; prior to restoration the poster had tiny tears and a few tiny areas of paper loss on the vertical fold and tiny holes at each crossfold. There were a few other very minor border and fold defects. The poster was well restored as its very minor defects were well corrected and the poster now looks quite nice!
