A large-scale 'Lost' poster, now found

This is Paramount p1202-374a, Carole Lombard from 1932. Pretty sultry, eh?

Now imagine it blown up to poster size. Well, the good news is you don't have to imagine, because this enlarged image actually exists.

This, measuring an eye-popping 24" x 36", was created in 1987 to promote a volume of classic film portraits (from 1916 to 1932) titled "Lost Hollywood." The Lombard image and the 79 others reprinted in the book were created using something called the gravure process, a sheet-fed procedure said to create detailed velvety black and white images, complementing the era's exquisite photography.

For the book's author, Jack Woody, this was personal; he's the grandson of early talkie star Helen Twelvetrees. (The book was published by Twelvetrees Press.)

While "Lost Hollywood" is out of print, though available from several sellers, our focus is on that poster -- which can be yours. Either buy it for $35 straight up, or make an offer.
