Justine (Original title card maquette for the 1969 film)
Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1969. Original title card maquette hand lettered by Harold Adler for the 1969 film. Based on the "Alexandria Quartet" by Lawrence Durrell. Harold Adler was a calligrapher who created hand lettered titles on over 100 films, worked frequently with Alfred Hitchcock, and was a favorite of legendary title sequence designers Saul Bass and Pablo Ferro.

A young British schoolmaster and poet travels to Alexandria, where he meets Justine, the mysterious wife of a banker, whom he discovers is involved in a plot to arm the Jewish underground in Palestine. Shot, in part, on location in Tunisia. 17.25 x 11.5 inches. Black ink on white card stock, with tissue paper overlay. Near Fine, with light toning to the card edges.
