    This is an original 1920 Alexander "The Man Who Knows" stone lithograph from my private collection of Magic posters. This is a 1-sheet sized poster and is the more common of the Alexander posters left in existence, but still a strong and powerful image.

    Alexander was perhaps the most successful professional theatrical mind reader of his generation. He made millions of dollars performing on the grandest vaudeville stages - nearly $240,000. in 1924 alone and retired at age 47.

    Alexander Conlin admitted to killing four men, was married seven times, occasionally to more than one woman at a time, spent time in jails and prisons around the U.S. and counted some of the greatest magicians of his time as his close friends.

      I love your magic. My first job out of college as a graphic artist was at a print shop owned by an amateur magician - AND he had many old posters hung around the shop. I know some of them were really large - 50" or more? and I don't remember the images.

      Thanks valentino97 and tom61375, sounds like you had a cool graphic artist job and would have loved to see those large Magic posters, I wish you had some photos of them. They were most likely 3-sheet and 8-sheet sized posters.....VERY large in size standing at about 9 feet tall. I have a few of those in my collection and a few here on CW as well (Dante 3-sheet and Carter 8-sheet litho) Thanks again for the love and comments, they are very much appreciated.
