Performing Arts Poster : “The Incomparable Albini” (1911)

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.

A promotional poster for Herbert Albini (born Abraham Laski), a Polish-born magician who adopted an arrogant demeanor, harshly insulting his audience. He is known for opening a fresh deck of cards for each effect, leaving the stage littered by the end of his performance, and as inventor of the “Girl to Gorilla” illusion. In this effect, a girl would enter a glass box and slowly transform into a gorilla as the audience watched. When the metamorphosis was complete, the gorilla would burst from the box and frighten the crowd. This poster was issued near the end of his career, as Albini was touring vaudeville in an extravagant production that used twelve stage assistants.
