For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite

John Lennon was inspired to write the song For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite, after purchasing an old circus poster from 1843. Now a guy who wanted to recreate that very poster has made a very short video of how he set about it with the aid of New North Press, who are keeping alive the old fashioned letter press style of printing that would have been used in the early days of music hall/circus etc.
