    The Beatles "A Hard Day's Night" Poster Rough Layout (United Artists, 1964). A rough layout is a general sketch of a poster which shows the position of text and illustrations giving the general appearance of the final poster. This rough layout consists of one piece of artist's tracing paper stapled to a piece of thicker paper. The elements used are pencil, black and grey paint, and measures approximately 24" X 19". A one-of-a-kind prototype artwork created in the developmental stage of original artwork for the 1964 USA Movie Poster for "A Hard Day's Night." The cartoon girls drawn in pencil on this Maquette were used in many of the final versions of the 1964 movie poster, and the lobby cards as well. This artwork was created in 1964 at United Artists Publicity Department and discarded after use. Pictured on page 186 of "The Beatles Memorabilia Price Guide, 2nd Edition" by Jeff Augsburger, Marty Eck and Rick Rann published 1993. Very Fine.
