DescriptionThe Endless Summer (Cinema 5, 1966). Very Fine+. Poster (11" X 17"). John Van Hamersveld Artwork.
Just one look at this iconic Van Hamersveld image will spark the wanderlust first evoked in 1966 by Bruce Brown's legendary documentary about two young surfers, Mike Hynson and Robert August. Brown chronicles their globe-trotting expedition in search of the perfect wave and some of the colorful characters they meet along the way. The film features plenty of amazing scenery, memorable experiences, and some of the best surfing footage ever filmed. Offered here is a special piece--often referred to as the "wilding" poster--produced before the film was picked up for national distribution and used to promote showings on college campuses. It has very few issues, showing just light handling creases, a very minor corner bend, and a faint stain in the bottom left corner. Very Fine+.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
