More about this item:

An original 8-page Campaign Book (10"x 14") bearing Chantrell's infamous artwork for "Carry on Cleo" (Chantrell ended up in court for spoofing the marketing campaign for the film "Cleopatra" - lots more information available in Sim Branaghan's excellent book "British Film Posters" (2006)). Given that most posters bearing this Chantrell artwork were recalled & pulped, it is difficult finding any original 1965 memorabilia bearing this imagery. The back page provides an example of the range of posters that were intended to promote the film (one tiny cut-out). The Campaign Book also shows that a cardboard folding display unit was also designed but it is highly likely that none of these will have survived. There is a 3 1/2" separation to the lower spine but otherwise this piece remains in fine condition.
