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

Condition: very good to fine. poster was lightly folded in half an extra time, but the extra foldlines are barely noticeable; there is small separation and tiny paper loss at each crossfold; there are a couple of pinholes in each corner; there are minor creases around the edges of the poster; The above is truly nitpicking! The poster is in really nice unrestored condition (there is not a piece of tape anywhere on the poster), and its defects are extremely minor. While most collectors would certainly be happy with it just as it is, the minor defects would completely vanish if it were linenbacked and the poster would look perfect!
