Sometimes I like me some big gummint
The Library of Congress has nearly 150 vintage magic posters. You can browse and download high resolution copies by typing "magic" into the search query box here. Click the "preview images" button for thumbnails. I am no printing expert, but I imagine if you had the right printer and ink and canvas, you could make some very beautiful hard copies of these images.
I swear I could hang out here all day long. I am a vintage poster freak!
Now that is a good use of my tax dollars. I'm going to search "vaudeville" and "circus" and "cowboy" and ... and ... and ... I'm having a massive postergasm.
Here's a few for you. Click any image to enlarge (and as always, I encourage you to enlarge).
