    The Shape of Water (20th Century Fox, 2017). Special Venice International Film Festival Poster (16.75" X 26.75") & Memo (8.25" X 11.5") in Original Tube (3" X 19").
    Opening to critical acclaim across the globe, Guillermo del Toro's Cold War fairy tale has garnered a lengthy list of awards, taking home Oscars in the categories of Best Production Design, Best Original Score, Best Director, and the coveted accolade of Best Picture. Both touching and visually stunning, the film was an instant prize winner at its premier, handily winning the 74th Venice International Film Festival's prestigious Golden Lion award. Offered to only a small group of people at said premier, this creative piece features an incredibly detailed anatomical chart of the Amphibian Man, or homo piscis as he's called here, with a faux confidential memo, both contained in a protective tube. The canvas chart has a special old school aesthetic with its wooden blocks at the top and bottom, artificially aged to give it an extra look of authenticity. This first time offer from Heritage has never seen any use, and the poster itself shows no signs of handling. The memo has a bit of very slight edge wear, and the tube has a few small surface scuffs and light surface wear. Neither the memo nor the tube's condition factors into the grade. Rolled, Near Mint/Mint.
