I have an Abb Dickson poster from his Show "Presto!" that he signed for me in 1985 which is pretty neat, but I really love the classic posters, especially the Houdini "Buried Alive- Egyptian Fakirs outdone" poster from 1926. Had a chance to purchase an original one some years back but it turned out to be more than I wanted to go for...

I would love to find a source to purchase a Dai Vernon poster - even a print!

And for the record, my favorite poster by far is the red background, "Alexander, The Man Who Knows" poster. Do the Google. It's an iconic poster.

I am a graphic designer by trade, and adore...like all of us...the many fantastic magic poster designs of the past. But this one in particular hit me on the head like a hammer when I first saw it. And, at auction, it was relatively affordable due to its availability, I'm guessing due to historical timing, and how many of these particular posters were produced verses being destroyed.

Whatever. I don't care. For me, this poster is graphically one of the most powerful magic images ever mass produced. Simplicity and color drives the composition, but the eyes are the prize. Or the anti-prize. I hung this framed original poster in my "magic room," which was adjacent to our young son's room. And he would have none of it. That man was looking at him, and he insisted that we close the door so he could sleep.

The power of Alexander.
