This is an EXTREMELY RARE original 1929 lithograph from my private collection of Magic posters. It is a 1-sheet measuring approximately 28" x 43". This poster was used to advertise "Dante The Magician" and his show beginning on Tuesday February 19, 1929 at the Opera House in Leningrad, USSR.....known today as Saint Petersburg, Russia. This is the ONLY known poster from this show to survive!

I have completely restored this poster and had it professionally linen backed. It is a stunning example of Russian typography and graphic design. You have to appreciate the ONLY English words printed on this poster, "40 Girls".
