Description:
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1985. Original promotional poster for the Caldecott Medal winning children's book The Polar Express, signed by the illustrator/author Chris Van Allsburg. The poster measures 18 inches by 36 inches. All over the internet are Polar Express posters featuring the train that is illustrated on the book's dust jacket. Seldom seen is the poster that promoted the book before it won the Caldecott--a poster that features Santa and his reindeer rather than the train. Even more rare is one of those posters signed by Chris Van Allsburg. The signed poster offered here is in near fine condition: clean and bright, with one tiny corner crease well away from Van Allsburg's ethereal image.. SIGNED. First Edition. Single Sheet. Near Fine. Illus. by Chris van Allsburg. 18 inches by 36 Inches. Fine Art Print.
