This is an EXTREMELY RARE original 1928 lithograph from my private collection of Magic posters. It is a large 1-sheet size lithograph. This poster was used to advertise "Dante The Magician" and his show beginning on Tuesday December 11, 1928 at a venue in the USSR. This was the first year that Dante began performing in the USSR for a very short time. This is the ONLY known poster from this show to survive!

I have completely restored this poster and had it professionally linen backed. (See Before and After photos) It is a stunning example of Russian typography and graphic design. You have to appreciate the ONLY English words printed on this poster, "30 Girls".
