Schindlers List Eye Unused Saul Bass Original Vintage Movie Poster

Saul Bass Archive - June 2019 Update


New silkscreens, an unseen SCHINDLER'S LIST & more
Bonjour Tristesse Saul Bass Original Vintage Movie Poster

Dear Friends, Movie Lovers & Saul Fans:

We've got some major new releases from the Archive, including some posters that have rarely been offered - like this silkscreen for BONJOUR TRISTESSE. Though the original NSS 1 Sheet used this image in its entirety, this silkscreen is much more powerful. The white border and credits have been eliminated, leaving the iconic image and title alone. There's nothing to pull focus from the elegant, powerful design, and the rich silkscreened colors are stunning. Simply put: it's a work of art.

Schindlers List Unused Alternate Eye Saul Bass Original Vintage Movie Poster
The most exciting element of launching the Archive has been the chance to discover and share unique, rarely-seen examples of Saul's work, and this month, we've got a perfect example: Saul's unused, alternate design for Steven Spielberg's SCHINDLER'S LIST. While many are familiar with Saul's "Barbed Wire" 1 Sheet that was printed by Universal for the film, what's less known is that Bass worked extensively on an alternate, completely different design for the film. Both images are powerful, but at some point one was abandoned in favor of the other, and the alternate style was only printed by Saul ,in an extremely small test batch. As far as we know, none have previously been offered at auction, and it's possible that no examples of this poster left Saul's office. This month we are thrilled to be making one copy available - a rare chance to own what is unquestionably one of the scarcest Saul Bass posters ever made.
