Ephemera related to Stanley Kubrick's Masterpiece of Modern Horror, 'The Shining'
One of dozens and dozens of concepts rendered by designer Saul Bass on the path to creating the iconic poster image for The Shining. Kubrick clearly favored this pointillist approach, which ended up being used in final design.
Hand-written note is by Stanley Kubrick, and read: “Maze too abstract and too much emphasis on maze.”
Many of Saul Bass’s concept sketches can be viewed at the Stanley Kubrick Exhibition which is currently touring the world.
