  • Materials: 100lb Recycled Speckletone French Paper, Black Ink Silkscreened by hand

For the Past 7 years, this was the most accurate replica of John Lennon's Poster available, and still remains a great option for Beatles lovers around the world. But I have just spent the past year with new reference material making a PERFECT replica (limited to 500 pieces) that will never be topped: https://www.etsy.com/listing/756193492/john-lennons-mr-kite-poster-ultimate?ref=shop_home_active_1&frs=1

This is a painstaking recreation of the unique victorian circus poster that inspired John Lennon to write "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite." It measures 10 3/8" wide by 18 5/8" tall. Each is silkscreened by hand onto 100# "True White" speckletone paper by French Paper.

The text on the poster contains almost all the lyrics (or at least the seeds of what would become lyrics) to "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite." The original poster is a beautiful piece of music history, but Sean Lennon owns it now, so I hope I've created the next best thing; a lovely replica, suitable for hanging, that can be owned by the rest of us.

PLEASE NOTE: The poster comes UN-FRAMED. The image of the framed poster is intended as a display suggestion.

Posters are stored flat and, once ordered, are shipped in a wide tube to avoid curling.

The print looks great hung on my wall, in Rochdale, the town of the original circus for the benefit of mr kite! I wasn't happy that after paying carriage to the UK, I also had to pay a customs charge though. But the print looks great :)

The item is as described. I grew up with the Beatles and this is a great addition to my Beatles themed bar in the basement. It arrived quickly and was packaged perfectly. I am going to have it framed.

The Mr. Kite poster is lovely! Very good quality at a reasonable price. (Now framed, it looks great on the living room wall right beside our framed Sgt Pepper's picture disc.)

I've been looking for a replica of this poster for a long time but the only option had previously been extremely expensive. I was therefore delighted when I discovered this one at an affordable price, and even more so when I discovered that it is of equally high quality. Shipped quickly and arrived within a week, I couldn't be happier!
