The work of Mick McGinty is recognised globally. His designs have featured on Super Bowl programmes and beer bottles, but his most famous single work remains his poster design for Jaws.
Jaws invented the summer blockbuster and was a massive hit that shattered box office records. It was the film that propelled Steven Spielberg to international fame, and frightened a whole generation out of the water !
With the fish story to end all fish stories, Steven Spielberg was capitulated to the top rank of film makers in 1975, and Bruce the Shark became an instant cultural icon. This beautiful one sheet has the classic image of this massive great-white shark about to strike the hapless midnight swimmer in the film's opening sequence. This poster has sold for a record £3751.87 at Christie’s South Kensington on June 23rd 2010.
