Every now and again, while searching for original vintage movie posters, we come across a poster that isn't movie related, but, is just too good, we have to buy it. We call these our 'non-movie' collection.
From the 'non-movie' collection we present a guaranteed original Richard Avedon "Mount Rushmore" banner poster of 'The Beatles' from 1967.
Photographer Richard Avedon first snapped The Beatles in 1965. Two years later, in August 1967, he returned with the group to the same studio on Gray's Inn Road, London. It was three months after the release of "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and the session caught the band at their creative peak.
The copyrights to all photos was owned by NEMS Enterprises Limited, the firm run by The Beatles manager, Brian Epstein.
Four photos became colourful psychedelic shots. Another four were used to produce this black and white banner poster, known affectionately as "The Mount Rushmore" banner.
All five were then made in to posters and published simultaneously world-wide. In the U.K. they were made available to fans through the 'Daily Express' newspaper. In the U.S. through 'Look' magazine. In Europe, they were available through 'Stern' magazine and our poster is from this release.
The poster has never been folded and has been beautifully linen-backed (see FAQs). It displays beautifully.
This poster is a "must have" for any Beatles fan or music lover and will look superb framed and on a wall.
We only sell guaranteed original posters. We do not sell reproductions.
Note: This poster is priced unframed. Photos showing framed and 'in room' images are for illustration only. Please check our hi-res images and the sizing information shown above.
