Object ID #: 2015.1.3.13.1-4.design
One-sheet (26" x 40") Crouching Tiger “Stock” poster design, 4-color, with detailed cross-hatching to simulate full color print.
After initial printing and storage into inventory, the “Stock” designs typically included blank space for the later addition of type for over-printing text details that might include the circus name, date of event, and location. A print in Hamilton’s Enquirer Collection includes this stock design printed to promote the Clyde Beatty and Cole Brothers Circus. Design and cross-hatching technique by Enquirer Printing Company’s Artist John Kerner.
