Poster for the Agatha Christie Centenary celebration.
London: 1990. Poster. Agatha Christie's name and her centenary dates (1890-1990) border a clever central motif of question marks circling a single point. Heavily autographed by various actors and contributors to Christie productions, among them Maggie Smith, Lauren Bacall, Pauline Moran, Mia Farrow, David Suchet, Peter Ustinov, and Edward Gorey. Gorey's signature is an odd addition among mainly players in the film and television industry, and especially so because no evidence exists (that we know about) of Gorey ever leaving the country. A fascinating bit of Gorey ephemera, and one close to his heart; Gorey was a devotee of Christie, and gravely mourned her passing. Mild creasing at point along perimeter, else near fine. (Measures 30 by 20 in.). Item #32131
