The Champion Show of the WorldAnon
Astonishingly rare poster from the very earliest days of British Film. Posters like this were displayed outside temporary ‘cinemas’ (usually theatres) in the 1900s, where travelling projectionists showed a selection of short films to enthralled audiences. This poster features Jean of Arc, a popular heroine of early film. In a charming mix of old and new, her medieval shield depicts a 'modern' film projector. Fully conserved and laid on Japan backing for preservation. A museum quality piece.
