A Generation Poster

UK Quad poster for the Andrezej Wajda Polish WWII drama "A Generation" (1955) with highly distinctive Peter Strausfield poster illustration.

Though released in 1955, this is the poster for the debut UK release in 1960. The poster was designed specifically for use by the London arthouse cinema The Academy (Strausfield being the in-house poster designer). The poster is a rare unfolded "printer's proof" without the completed "Academy" text (see the example below courtesy of posteritati for comparison).

Poster in excellent unfolded condition with a small conservation repair (1/8") to top left corner and slight mark bottom left corner. A poster with a minimalist design which is nonetheless striking. A brilliant piece of poster art.
