Hardeen - Brother of Houdini (1930) Classic magic poster art.
Art: Theodore "Dash" Hardeen (born Ferenc Dezső Weisz; March 4, 1876 – June 12, 1945), known simply as Hardeen, was a Hungarian magician and escape artist who was the younger brother of Harry Houdini. Hardeen, who usually billed himself as the "brother of Houdini", was the founder of the Magician's Guild. Hardeen was the first magician to conceive escaping from a straitjacket in full view of the audience, rather than behind a curtain. The show was at the Lyric Theatre and also on the bill was Princess Yvonne, the Mystery Girl.

The Woody is made from ½ inch wood with two ¼ inch batons on the back to raise the art off the wall and picture hanging hardware is applied for easy hanging. This design format provides a traditional picture look by adding a deep dimension to feature the piece on the wall.
The Woody offers a distinct advantage to printing art on paper. Wood is a natural stable medium, therefore it’s free of acids and other chemicals that will cause water marking, staining, fading and deterioration from light. Modern UV inks will retain their color properties for decades and when printed on wood will age beautifully thus creating additional value. It not only makes a great addition to your home, it’s also a one of a kind piece that will last a lifetime.
