While Bob Peak’s US one sheet for My Fair Lady is going for upwards of £700 at Christie’s, you can snap up this much hipper Czech original for a quarter of the price at the new British poster store Orson & Welles.

“Dreams, memories, the sacred  they are all alike in that they are beyond our grasp. Once we are even marginally separated from what we can touch, the object is sanctified; it acquires the beauty of the unattainable, the quality of the miraculous. Everything, really, has this quality of sacredness, but we can desecrate it at a touch. How strange man is! His touch defiles and yet he contains the source of miracles.”
