"Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Go Back In The Water..." A US One-Sheet movie poster for Jaws 2 (1978) featuring early unreleased artwork. This example shows the iconic oversized shark head imagery attacking a sailboat with one unfortunate teenager about to become a shark snack, the design that was originally to be used as the lead poster in the cinematic marketing campaign. Only a small number of these posters were actually printed, with this example being even rarer due to it being a Printer's Proof, making it an early example. The sailboat artwork was replaced with the more recognisable girl water skiing with the shark looming behind her. An item for the serious Jaws collector with this being a first-time offering for Propstore.
