If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this is a very special promotional poster that was created as a special promotional item for this most unusual movie. It is a "faux" poster created to look like it is a historical poster created many years ago, showing "Anatomy of Homo Piscis" (which is the creature from the movie), and it is set up like an old fashioned anatomy chart from a doctor's office. The poster itself is printed on a canvas material that has been artificially "aged" to make it look old. It has wooden pieces attached to the top and bottom of the poster with screws, and the bottom wood has a metal plate attached to the middle and within the plate "Dr. Guillermo del Toro"! There is a string attached to the top piece of wood to allow it to be hung. The poster rolls and comes in a specially made tube designed to hold it which has two stickers attached to it with the name of the movie, the year of "1962" (when the movie is set, the name of the director and "Classified". Included with the poster is a 8 1/4" x 11 3/4" "memo", printed on artificially aged paper which purports to be a "confidential memorandum" about "a new discovery in London" and describing the recent discovery of a vivisection of a fish-man which confirms that the government was not the "first to encounter such a species" (see our image). The ends of the tube have a printed space image with "Department of Defense Aerospace Research" in a circle around it. This is surely one of the most elaborate "faux" posters we have ever seen! Because it comes in its own specially created tube, it will need to be sent separate from other purchases, by itself (and we will put the entire tube inside of a larger tube).

Condition: fine. The poster is in wonderful condition. The tube has a tiny "bump" at one end, but it is otherwise in excellent condition!
