This is an original 1914 Thurston "Wonder Show of the Universe" Stone lithograph from my private collection of Magic posters. It is sometimes referred to as the Thurston Devil Panel. This poster measures approximately 14" x 41" and is in A- condition (Almost perfect)
This poster is probably the most visually striking of all Magic posters and the most demonizing as it depicts the Devil in a menacing pose cradling a skull while surrounded by demons, imps, evil spirits, and various other creatures of the underworld.
This is a very scarce poster and my absolute favorite in my collection! The blacks are pure, and the colors are vibrant! The black background forces the reds and yellow typography to really pop! One of, if not the greatest poster ever created from the Golden Age of Magic!
