This is an original Brush "King of Wizards" stone lithograph from my private collection of Magic posters. It is a half sheet measuring approximately 21" x 28" and was printed by Goes Litho co. out of Chicago circa. 1920
This rare Brush poster is my favorite of all his posters and I have had this poster professionally linen backed and restored to excellent condition. This is a fantastic example of stone lithography and a classic poster image from the Golden Age of Magic. One of my favorites for sure!
