More about this item:

A large (13 1/2"x 18") artboard mounted photograph of Chantrell's prototype artwork for the Hammer film "To Love A Vampire" (released as "Lust For A Vampire" in 1970). As Marcus Hearn reveals in "The Hammer Vault" (2011), Hammer would frequently commission Chantrell to devise marketing visuals (as here), at the genesis of a film & these would be used to entice financiers (see image below from the book). Most poster artists were only involved & brought in at the end of the production process but it is testament to Chantrell's standing that Hammer Studios saw him as being vital at the very inception of a film!
