Houdini - King of Cards (c1910s) Classic magic poster art.
Art: Harry Kellar (July 11, 1849 – March 10, 1922) was an American magician who presented large stage shows during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Kellar was a predecessor of Harry Houdini and a successor of Robert Heller and Isaiah Hughes, under whom he apprenticed. He was often referred to as the "Dean of American Magicians" and performed extensively on five continents. One of his most memorable stage illusions was the levitation of a girl advertised as the "Levitation of Princess Karnac", copied from an illusion invented by John Nevil Maskelyne, which was later bought by Harry Blackstone, Sr.

This is made from ½ inch wood with two ¼ inch batons on the back to raise the art off the wall and picture hanging hardware is applied for easy hanging. This design format provides a traditional picture look by adding a deep dimension to feature the piece on the wall.
This product offers a distinct advantage to printing art on paper. Wood is a natural stable medium, therefore it’s free of acids and other chemicals that will cause water marking, staining, fading and deterioration from light. Modern UV inks will retain their color properties for decades and when printed on wood will age beautifully thus creating additional value. It not only makes a great addition to your home, it’s also a one of a kind piece that will last a lifetime.
All prints are made from original art and re-prints are sold by permission from the copyright owner. Art may show slight distress due to the age of the original art and factors from the wood.
