For every official
general release or re-release of the James Bond films in the US from
1963-1983, a half-sheet poster (22" x
28") was produced for cinema displays and advertising purposes. These colourful and highly
stylised posters are now collectors items and command high prices when
sold at auction. Half-sheet posters often used different artwork to that
featured on the main US 1-sheet. Half-sheets were printed on thicker paper than
the 1-sheet and consequently prone to fading. This size of poster
stopped being produced in the early 1980s and are highly sought after by
collectors due the the horizontal format, which lends itself to framing
more easily than the larger 1-sheets.
Moonraker (1979) and For Your Eyes
Only (1981) also had two alternate Style B half-sheet posters produced
for the international market.
Displayed here for the first time are all half-sheet posters in release
date order from 1963-1983.
