More about this item:

Though Chantrell's "monopoly" of Hammer poster designs (1965-70) ended in mid 1970, he continued to work on various Hammer commissions. Satanic Rites was one such commisssion, this being one of Chantrell's earlier designs after he went freelance in 1972. Chantrell's original design for this poster, pictured Dracula holding a knife & dead cockerel in each hand. As was often the case, the distributors asked for this image to be amended (aka "censored") something which frequently riled Chantrell (see also Marcus Hearn's Book "The Art of Hammer" 2010). This example has 2 vertical foldlines only & a 1 1/2" Conservation repair to the lower rim but overall it remains in excellent condition.
