If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: This poster has been professionally linenbacked. It now looks great, and most dealers would describe it as "fine (or mint) on linen". We have noted the defects that were restored below (and feel everyone should always do this!). Many collectors would not be aware of the restoration this poster has had unless it was specifically shown to them!

Condition: fine. This poster was in great condition prior to linenbacking (it truly had the most minor of fold wear and otherwise only had pinholes in the corners). It had the most minor of restoration and looks wonderful now! It is very very rare that you see great condition examples of classic 1930s one-sheets for sale at any price!
