"A legend for his performances-both on stage and off. Sundays 9pm, Beginning September 9, Ch. 13, PBS Masterpiece Theatre."

This beautiful poster advertises a PBS Mini-series based on a play by Alexandre Dumas, later adapted by Sartre. It follows the life of Edmund Kean, a 19th century performer known for his flamboyancy. The watercolor-esque design is well framed by the bold red-and-black writing.

Artist: Ivan Chermayeff
