They sent me the wrong banner, so I reduced it from a 5ft banner to fit a 23x35 frame.  

The seller is supposed to send me the one I wanted in the first place:

Does anybody know the deal on 27x40 TV posters?   I picked up six last night from this seller on Ebay to start a TV poster collection.   

The 27x40 posters are very uncommon on Ebay and apparently are NOT intended for the commercial poster market.  (The 24x36 posters are very common by contrast). 

Has anybody seen this size posted anywhere?  I'm thinking they must be posted in malls or even movie theaters as advertisements.

Both, Mel, but mostly for placement in movie theaters.  That's why I collect a lot of them, from the theater ad standpoint.  The lost posters are cool, especially the collage-type one.  Both are pricey.  Now, I need to know what that woman does with the snake?!
Best regards,

Two rare British commercial posters (25.25 x 35) from the one of the greatest TV series ever just arrived:




I also have this one:



I still need this - if anybody has it and is willing to part with it:

They are mainly used for wilding (Malls included under the out-of-home category) and internal and external promotions (I used to get a bunch through local stations while working in an Ad Agency), hence the reason they are nearly always single-sided.

Not exactly a TV poster, but a poster for a video release of a TV series.....counts right?

‘Mad Men’ Draws On an Original

In the five seasons that “Mad Men” has been on television that celebrated series set in the art-directed world of 1960s advertising has never marketed itself the way a ’60s ad man most certainly would have: by calling in a hotshot illustrator to do the job.

But as the show prepared for its new season, which begins April 7, its creator, Matthew Weiner, inspired by a childhood memory of lush, painterly illustrations on T.W.A. flight menus, decided to turn back the promotional clock. He pored over commercial illustration books from the 1960s and ’70s and sent images to the show’s marketing team, which couldn’t quite recreate the look he was after.

“Finally,” he said, “they just looked up the person who had done all these drawings that I really loved, and they said: ‘Hey, we’ve got the guy who did them. And he’s still working. His name is Brian Sanders.’ ”

Which explains how a 75-year-old illustrator living outside of Cambridge, England — highly regarded in his own country but little known in the United States — came to create the image that beginning this week will be emblazoned on buses, billboards, magazine pages, Web sites and TV. The ad, depicting Don Draper, the show’s lead character, in a vertiginous pose on a New York City street corner that seems to be collapsing on him like the decade he is living in, looks as if it has time-traveled from the pages of an old copy of Reader’s Digest.....

love the poster...love the show.

in my mad men circles, it was pointed out that the drawing was somewhat of re-rendering of a work that Sanders had done in 1964. i do love the don draper in the grey especially.

for comparison:

I thought that up until the last season it was the best show I had ever seen.

I thought last season was a giant step down. Less money, fewer characters, more sex, few references to the mid-1960s, etc, etc.

Still about as good as anything else on, just not what it had been.

last season did seem to straddle the line at times between being an emmy-winning drama and a glorified soap opera...several of the plot lines were way too contrived, and i'm not a big fan of the whole 'don's secret past' element that they seem insistent on returning to.

i'm not sure how many seasons they've got left, but i anticipate that there is only so much of an irrelevant don draper that i'll be able to take once we hit the seventies... i've always liked the show best when it centered around the office.

It's a once great show that is still capable of great episodes.

I agree with both of you. A lot of last season could have been a 2013 soap opera, and that is exactly opposite of what the show once was.

But obviously, sex sells, and a show about an ad agency didn't sell well enough, so we can expect to see even more sexy soap opera, and less ad agency.

And I imagine having sets and clothes that perfectly reflect the year proved to be too expensive too.

It DOES still have flashes of brilliance, though, and IS better than almost all of what is on TV, but that is kind of sad.
