This was an amazing turn up, it was certainly new to David who had never seen one before, it was new to me and a few other friends and collectors I know. It’s been quite a Magnum Force year for David, as you may remember he was lucky enough to obtain another very rare poster earlier this year, the Magnum Force Christmas Teaser (click here).
The subway poster is an incredibly beautiful thing. In fact, David obtained this privately from an old friend, so it is highly debatable that this poster image has ever been seen on the internet before now. It’s size is a huge 45” x 60” and would look stunning if displayed.
Of course, David is no stranger to these beautiful posters. His book: Clint Eastwood: Icon: The Essential Film Art Collection (left) is still the definitive publication when it comes to Eastwood artwork. Sadly, these two latest Magnum Force posters came along shortly after the latest 2018 publication deadline of his book – but they are certainly reflective of the magic that can be found between its pages.
It is also a significant reminder of just how quickly the market can evolve and perhaps a reminder of what is still available out there – it never fails to equally shock and surprise! If you haven’t discovered David’s book yet, be sure to check it out – it’s a magnificent testament and the ‘bible’ when it comes to Eastwood poster art. Check it out here.
I would like to thank David for handing us this beautiful high resolution photo of the incredibly rare subway poster. It is always a pleasure.
