UK Quad poster for Stanley Kubrick's Oscar winning visual tour-de-force "2001 A Space Odyssey" (1968) this being the Style-A Quad design & a scarce example from the earliest print run.

This is a very rare early example from the initial print run as indicated by the banner text sticker at the top which has been added to cover the original printed text which read "Your greatest adventure awaits you in...". A decision was taken to change the header script as virtually all Style-A examples of this Quad carry the "An epic drama.." text. Rather than re-print the initial batch, printers simply added the replacement text sticker. After the initial print-run, however, the poster was re-configured with the updated text obviating the need for the sticker. The certification mark has also been over-stickered in this example.

In a nice touch artist Bob McCall depicts the departing spaceship carrying a "PAN AM" airlines logo. Given the insignificant size, it is likely this was a tongue-in-cheek gesture by McCall rather than evidence of product placement (sadly "PAN AM" didn't make it to 2001 going bust in 1991).
