I am a Duran Duran poster archivist in the United States and I'm writing in the hope that someone may able to assist me in my quest. For over 20 years I have set about the task of documenting Duran's storied career. I am trying to turn up the heat on my hunt for posters from the band's earliest years and I would love to hear from anyone who may have saved such paper treasures.
I'm looking for large posters (A1 size or bigger) promoting the band, concerts, record releases, or any special event related to Duran Duran. I realize the chance of any artifacts surviving over decades may be small, but I thought I would reach out to the country that Duran calls home, including those who may have grown up in or around the places where the band first emerged or played shows.
I am prepared to offer generous compensation for any vintage poster that I need: $500 - $700 or more in U.S. currency, depending upon size and condition of the poster.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from anyone who may be able to help.
