About The Poster: This is an original 1922 tipped in mini poster, designed by Robert J. Wildhack for The Circular Staircase in 1908.
"...R. J. Wildhack works almost without a single line, entirely in contrasting masses, cleverly juxtaposed to produce strong effects. Nor is his range elaborate or in any way obscure - indeed its keynote is absolute simplicity, wherein lies its strength. Mr. Wildhack understands the principle and most important points involved in the design of a successful poster. He eliminates detail, buts suggests its existence. He keeps his action at the front of the stage, and grandly ignores backgrounds. He shuns masses of small letters, and keeps his main legend clearly in mind, dashing it in with bold and graceful proportions, not only keeping it in scale with is composition, but usually incorporating it as well. There is nothing apologetic about his style, and for its purpose of advertising, it succeeds at sight."
