    Description

    2001: A Space Odyssey (MGM, 1968). Special Promotional Italian Printed International Posters (10) (27.5" X 39").
    A monumental shift forward in the science fiction genre, this film set a new standard for special effects, and stood as the leading movie of its type until the coming of Star Wars in 1977. It should come as no surprise, then, that paper from this picture is considered extremely collectible, especially the rare and seldom-seen formats that were created to promote this groundbreaking release. Although the posters presented here were printed in Italy, we believe that they were intended for international use - note the lack of titles - as the Italians were printing a number of deluxe lobby sets for worldwide release at this time. Due to their size, we expect that these pieces were used mainly for premiere or other large attendance releases. Hence, they are extremely rare, potentially one of the rarest poster styles created for the original release of this landmark film. With ten different images available here, this is close to what we believe to be a full set of twelve. These posters generally show edge and fold wear, slight separations, creases, and pinholes. Some have tears into the interior, fold toning, staining, and foxing. A few have surface paper loss and/or pieces of cellophane tape in the image, and some have cellophane tape on the verso. Folded, Fine.
