Christies’ Pop Culture auction in London

The forthcoming Pop Culture auction at Christies is something of a mixed affair, covering everything from pop art to film posters and music memorabilia. And one item in particular covers all bases.

This is a Quadrophenia poster from the 1979 movie – but it’s not any old Quadrophenia poster. This is actually a prop from the movie, announcing The Who’s upcoming residency at London’s Marquee club. I can’t say for sure whether this is a mock up or a copy of an original – maybe someone out there knows?

Sized at 76 x 51cm, it’s selling for what sounds like a fairly reasonable £300 – £500, especially when you consider how unique this item actually is. Find out about the poster and all the other lots via the link below – the auction takes place at the South Kensington auction house in London on 4th December 2008.
