Up for sale is simply one of the greatest 1970’s science fiction posters ever created: AN ORIGINAL 1979 Star Trek: The Motion Picture 24-sheet MOVIE POSTER! Paramount Pictures commissioned the world’s foremost poster artist, Bob Peak, to render this striking billboard art for the launch of their big screen foray into outer space. Star Trek: The Motion Picture was born, and the rest is history! It’s important to note that Peak was the first movie poster artist to win the prestigious Society of Illustrators award, solidifying him as the top film poster artist working at the time. I’ve added special information in the photo section of this listing on the illustrious and long past enjoyed by the Society – check it out! This 24-sheet billboard poster size was only issued when the film first came out. Almost all the billboards were pasted up and used, so only a FEW survived. This poster, as was the case with all 24-sheet posters manufactured at the time, is printed in multiple separate paper sections. When assembled, in total it measures about 19 feet 7 inches by 8 feet 9 inches. This poster is in. AMAZING MINT/NearMINT ORIGINAL UNUSED CONDITION!!

After 100 years of being the industry standard, paper billboards are now an artifact from the past. The film industry discontinued printing their 24-sheet and 30-sheet movie billboards on paper, just like that – overnight – in the early 2000s. Unlike poster paper, vinyl is NOT archival or stable! It degrades and breaks down over time. Vinyl is also exceeding difficult to store. Basically, vinyl poster stock is not viable for long-term collecting and procuring! I won’t touch it. Happily, this vintage Star Trek 24-sheet was made on glorious high-quality paper. It was right about 2007 (or thereabouts) that the paper movie billboard sadly came to an historic end in America. Nevertheless, the paper billboard had enjoyed a full 100 years of prowess. It more than stood tall; it stood mighty, as a unique art form and an important part of our heritage. Life would look a whole lot different here in the United States if it weren’t for the creation of the billboard. There’s no question, billboards have literally changed the landscape of this country – from sea to shining sea. The best of them need to be preserved. This is one of the very best of them! It can crash regardless of any decision you make and can even crash regardless of any decision made by the company related to the stock – Leaving you with a near worthless piece of paper that won’t inspire anyone! The magnificence of art and historic documents have an inherent value that relates to civilization and society. This poster is definitely. FOR MOST ITEMS LISTED. Please write with any questions.
