This is an original Kar-Mi stone lithograph from my private collection of Magic posters. It is a 1-sheet measuring approximately 28" x 41" and is in "B" condition, due to missing paper around some of the edges. This 1914 poster advertises Kar-Mi's "Selma" illusion which was the transformation and restoration of a living body (See illusion description below)

Beautiful, weird, wonderful and astounding beyond belief is the transformation of SELMA, whose body moves from place to place in midair, impelled by marvelous occult forces conjured up from the spirit world. A dumbfounding exhibition that borders on the supernatural and startles all beholders into breathless silence as they realize that the mystic and terrific forces of an unknown world are being wielded by these strange conjurers!

    Thank you Bellin68, I'm glad you can appreciate these posters as much as I can. I will continue to post them as my collection grows.

    This is fabulous, the art, must be worth a fortune, and beautiful all at once, its like walking around a sideshow at the circus the first time for me and I was astonished at amazing posters of preposterous people that came out of a nightmare fantasy and it was so real to me !~

    Yes, the Kar-Mi posters are some of the most graphically designed Magic posters in my opinion and they exhibit a wonderful horizontal composition within the 1-sheet poster size. Glad you like this one.
