YOUR COLLECTION CANNOT END! This is by far the greatest Batman poster ever created! It’s also the rarest, being it. Original known to exist in the collecting marketplace. This original lithograph is as spectacular a design as exists in the movie poster world. It get’s no better folks! If you’re a Batman fan, you already know how important this film is to the franchise. It revitalized the entity in a way that took it WAY beyond the comics. In fact, it even took it way beyond what Superman had. On screen or in print, catapulting Batman to the #1 Superhero of all time. This film is arguably more important than the Dark Knight, as there would be no Dark Knight without this film. NO serious Batman collection is complete without this stellar cultural artifact. The 30-Sheet poster format. 10 by 22 feet is the rarest of all the original movie poster sizes, as only a few hundred were originally manufactured to begin with. Additionally, it’s important to understand that the paper billboard format is meant to be pasted-up to a hardboard surface – thus destroying it upon 1st use. By the very nature of their design, a 30-sheet billboard can only be used once, and so there’s no second use for this size. Subsequently, 30-sheet poster originals are the rarest of all the poster sizes in the hobby today. I don’t know of any other dealer or collector anywhere in the world who has one of these Batman Begins Advance billboards! You won’t find another! WHY IS THIS REALLY SO RARE? It’s an impossible find because it’s an Out-of-home. Is an advertising industry term. It means outdoor print advertising: billboards, kiosks, sun-shelters, etc. Also includes other venues accessible to the public: malls, airports, transit systems, supermarkets, toy stores, etc. Use of out-of-home movie poster advertising for major Hollywood films dates back to the early 1930s. It’s a tried and true – proven and tested – longstanding method of advertising “A” quality Hollywood features. And, the actual printing methods/. Used to make the out-of-home posters differs from that of the NSS or studio issued releases, and so for. Movie poster dealers didn’t have any established. Or inroads into getting ahold of out-of-home paper. By the time poster dealers did establish contacts to regularly acquire out-of-home inventory, the film industry discontinued printing 30-sheet billboards on paper. Unlike poster paper, vinyl is NOT archival or stable! It degrades and breaks down over time. Vinyl is also exceeding difficult to store. Basically, vinyl poster stock is not viable for longterm collecting and procuring! I won’t touch it. Happily, this Batman Begins 30-sheet was one of last paper 30-sheet posters distributed on a top Hollywood film. GONE WITH THE WIND! After 100 years of being the industry standard, paper billboards are now an artifact from the past. In 2007 (or thereabouts), the paper movie billboard came to an historic end in America. Nevertheless, the paper billboard has enjoyed a 100 years of prowess. It more than stood tall, it stood mighty, as a unique art form and an important part of our heritage. Life would look a whole lot different here in the United States if it weren’t for the creation of the billboard. There’s no question, billboards have literally changed the landscape of this country – from sea to shining sea. The best of them need to be preserved. This is one of the best! Rare Batman billboard is in. UNUSED MINT/NearMINT ORIGINAL CONDITION! It’s still folded up the way it was manufactured – in sections. 30-sheet posters are typically printed in 12 sections sometimes more. His Batman was made in 12 sections. When assembled it measures approximately 272 inches by 123 inches. I opened it ONCE to make sure the poster was complete and to take photos of the sections (see photo #3). Other than opening it that one time, this poster hasn’t seen the light of day. The photo posted in this listing is from a used/destroyed billboard that hung in 2005. If you want to display the poster in one glorious piece it can be linen-mounted in one section, which can then be easily rolled for transport. There are a number of different linen-mounting companies that can this. I can help anyone who buys this find the right one. It can crash regardless of any decision you make and can even crash regardless of any decision made by the company related to the stock – Leaving you with a near worthless piece of paper that won’t inspire anyone! The magnificence of art and historic documents have an inherent value that relates to civilization and society. FOR MOST ITEMS LISTED. Please write with any questions.
