rare poster created back in 1980 to promote the 5th Toronto International Film Festival.
I got it at the time from a store that was advertising the festival on bloor
Not only is the image extremely striking but it is also printed on silver foil paper (like light tinfoil) , a material and screen printing method which is very costly and seldom seen today. This was a well designed period piece - striking - great for someone in film business or associated with TIFF or into black / silver decor - or someone interested in 1980s Canadian design
The foil contrasts effectively with the black ´pixelated´ image, giving the whole piece a feeling of movement. You can almost hear the ´click´ of the cut board!
38 inches wide x 27 inches high
It's in very good used condition - no rips tears -but some bends etc to the paper/metal foil
199.00 cash only
