The Thing Poster

Scarce UK 1-Sheet poster (27"x 40") for the John Carpenter horror-scifi classic "The Thing" (1982).

The artist, Les Edwards was not a particularly prolific poster artist, being better known for his horror-fantasy book cover designs. However, this is a great piece of intricate artwork, ably creating a sense of foreboding that sets the tone for the film. Edwards original design included a more rugged foreground but scifi illustrator Jim Burns was brought in to "soften" this, as the poster subsequently shows. Given the nature of the artwork the alien monster looks far more dramatic in the 1-Sheet than the Quad. UK 1-Sheets were printed in much smaller quantities than the corresponding Quad posters & are consequently much harder to find.

Poster with a tiny slither missing to top right corner & a few light creases but overall in very good condition & a scarce piece of John Carpenter memorabilia.

NB. A supplementary P&P charge will be required for overseas buyers.
