Freak Show Poster : “Piccadilly Hall – Royal American Midgets” (c. 1882)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

This promotional poster for London’s Piccadilly Hall features the Royal American Midgets; a duo consisting of General Mite and Millie Edwards, here billed as “The Most Beautiful and Fairy-like Little Lady in the World, now in her 15th Year.” In 1884 the pair would marry. The ceremony attracted so many spectators that the church sold tickets.
