This was the movie that set the mold for the modern summer blockbuster. While during this time frame it was common for other countries to use their own art for film posters, Roger Kastel’s iconic shark design was so impactful that it was used near universally (only a few exceptions in Eastern European). In fact, the original shark image was first designed for the paperback edition of Peter Benchley’s novel while Kastel was employed with Bantam Books — Universal was so taken with the design that it was used unchanged.

Here it is, the holy grail of Jaws posters! The amazing Kastel design on this US 1-sheet has elevated it to one of the most widely recognized and desirable posters in the history of the medium. However, what makes this particular copy so rare is that it was never folded! Only a handful of these rolled Jaws 1-sheets have turned up over the years — don’t miss this near mint example!
