This piece was printed in two sheets, and designed to be pasted onto billboards. Therefore only unused examples survived.

This cult classic was directed by Michelangelo Antonioni, and is about a fashion photographer, played by David Hemmings, who captures a murder on film whilst taking photos in a deserted park. The film also stars Vanessa Redgrave, Sarah Miles, John Castl and Jane Birkin. BLOW-UP was Michelangelo Antonioni's provocative mystery set in London's trendy swinging sixties. It became an international critical and commercial success. David Hemmings is the hot photographer, whose models include the very in demand real-life model, Veruschka. After shooting her in a sensual session, they meet at a party, where Hemmings says, "I thought you were in Paris." Veruschka, obviously high, then delivers what is arguably the most famous line in the film, "I am in Paris".
