Item #32131 Poster for the Agatha Christie Centenary celebration.
(Gorey, Edward)

Poster for the Agatha Christie Centenary celebration.

London: 1990. Single sheet on glossy poster stock measuring 20 by 30 inches. Agatha Christie's name and her centenary dates (1890-1990) border a clever central motif of question marks circling a single point. Surrounding the central graphic are the autographs of various actors and contributors to Christie productions, among them Maggie Smith, Lauren Bacall, Pauline Moran, Mia Farrow, David Suchet, Peter Ustinov, and Edward Gorey. Aside from his work on the opening sequence to PBS's Mystery! series, Gorey's signature is an odd addition among mainly players in the film and television industry; and especially so because, to our knowledge, no evidence exists of Gorey ever leaving the U.S. 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, single inch-long closed tear, else near fine. Item #32131

Price: $1,250.00
