Japanese poster size
« on: March 26, 2021, 01:41:51 PM »
Hi, I bought a Japanese poster for Thunder In Carolina thinking it was a tatekan. Now the odd thing is that it's a one-piece poster measuring 33x62". As an experienced moneythrower to posters the last 25-30 years my first thought was fake or repro. Still can be of course, but the back with Japanese writing and rather rough paper (somewhere between regular and half sheet paper) it looks worn enough and I mean it's for Thunder In Carolina not Casablanca. Who'd make a 33x62 inch fake? Anyone here heard of this size for a Japanese poster. The seller calls it "western style-poster" for what it's worth.

Sounds like it is a B0 to me. Sizes for them can vary but although 33x62 sounds a little narrow to me for one I do not think it is outside the realm of reason.

Heard from a very reputable source that it is called a "kingsize" and that it is a rare size.
