19th Century Kellar Levitation Magic Poster. This poster is for one of his most famous acts (read on). Harry Kellar was born in 1849. He was an American magician who presented large stage shows during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He was a predecessor of Harry Houdini. He was often referred to as the “Dean of American Magicians” and performed on five continents. One of his most memorable stage illusions was the levitation of a girl, which he called the “Levitation of Princess Karnac” (d. An interesting fact about him is that he had a short temper. He died on March 10, 1922.
This poster is printed all the way to the edge and therefore there is no white or other edge around it.
The original scanned image was digitally restored and cleaned up by me. During this process I adjust the colors, the exposure and fix any blemishes on the print. However, I do not retouch everything in order to maintain the vintage poster look. This ensures that this reproduction looks as good as possible and produces a high quality print – while maintaining a historical accuracy in its look.
WHAT MAKES MY PRINTS DIFFERENT
Sure, you might find similar pictures elsewhere but not all prints are equal. I don’t use regular printers and paper to print this art. Instead, I use a high end lab and the prints are made on professional photo printers using high quality a archival inks and acid-free archival Lustre paper. Lustre is a premium finish on a heavier paper and offers the vibrant colors of glossy with the fingerprint-resistant finish of matte. This type of finish avoids glare on the print.
Prints are available in all popular sizes. You can select your size while you order.
My listing photos are low resolution. Original high resolution files are used for printing. My pictures are not framed and do not include a frame. Some of the pictures with frames are just for illustration purposes only.
Prints are packaged to avoid any damage in transit. Usually prints will be flat-packed and shipped in a rigid box with material to protect the finished print. Some prints might be shipped in a rigid mailing tube with material to protect the finished print. Please see the shop’s policies page for additional information on shipping.
