    “A masterpiece of modern horror”

    A beautiful, complete set of all nine US front of house lobby cards from first year of release, 1980 including the impressive Saul Bass designed title card for Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece of modern horror  “The Shining”. These full-colour, full bleed (the imagery runs right to the edge with no border) cards comprise a series of incredible character and key scene imagery, that includes two from the iconic ‘Here’s Johnny’ moment with six in total to feature ‘mad’ Jack Nicholson. A rare find as a complete set as most were broken up and the cards sold individually. Totally original and unrestored, the cards are presented in high grade excellent flat, unfolded (as issued) condition that display and present to excellent effect. A genuinely scarce and hard to find example of  horror film cinema memorabilia for one of the most important and influential horror films ever made.All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy…”
