Beginning in the early 1960s, Saul Bass commissioned the Art Krebs Studio in Los Angeles to produce hand pulled serigraph prints featuring the original design concepts for many of his movie posters (and trade ads). Since the original designs were often modified by the film studio, or not used at all in a film’s final advertising, the silkscreen prints were created to celebrate his original vision. Printed in small editions of 150-200, usually soon after the theatrical release of the film, they were typically sent to poster exhibitions or given as gifts to museums, friends, clients, and colleagues. By the mid-1980s, when most of the original prints had been depleted, a second printing was commissioned from the Art Krebs Studio of some of the original designs, as well as a first run of other concept posters and trade ads that had not been screen printed before. These second printings also consisted of small editions of 150-200 with the exception of three posters where 400 were printed; Magnificent Seven, Anatomy of a Murder and The Cardinal.
