God, what a boring poster. A bit of Times New Roman. A bit of Arial Bold. It's not like you're missing much if you'd just print the pic on A4 format.

FAKE. 'Rejected printer's copy', my arse. Only one poster came off the presses for this gig, listing Emergency (later Foreign Press) as support, even though they weren't - JD just used their massive PA system, engineered by Emergency's soundman Colin Blades. I happen to know 'leedsoddjob' via past dodgy dealings, and he's a wanker who'd say anything except his prayers.

So is it general consensus/opinion then that a poster in this print format (JOY DIVISION plus SUPPORT) was never made?

If that's the case, shouldn't the example in the Royal Standard gig entry be removed or labeled as likely not authentic? Having it there seems to lend a vote of confidence towards it.

Clearly it was fake, no seller would let it go for £133 if it was a genuine original. That's the obvious conclusion.

"promotional poster issued to publicise the Anonymous Records 12"" EP released in September 1978."

Well I guess that's true except that, as far as I'm aware, while the single came out in September 1978, the poster itself didn't appear until about 1984...
