This poster was created to advertise the magazine Ten Years to Go: The Magazine for Survival. Sadly, the magazine was never published, making this the only remaining evidence that it was ever going to happen. Frankly, now it's just a kitschy bit of humor for your wall.
This is an ORIGINAL FIRST PRINTING of this poster by the artist Valdemar Swierzy.
Printed in 1975, it advertises the release of the book 100 Years of Circus Posters. Shown is a rather adorable lion, lifting up his reading glasses as he turns away from his copy of the book to face the viewer.
