Posters of Grand Guignol?

Looking for posters of Grand Guignol shows for an upcoming film set.... any ideas?

Hey gang,
We're shooting a film in January and we've been looking for Grand Guignol theatre show bills or posters to decorate the office of a sinister producer-type figure. I haven't had much luck locating any so far and even though we did find a collector's site with images, they are too small to reproduce.

Here's a link to an explanation and some poster examples for those unacquainted with the topic: http://www.grandguignol.com/

Being an indie production, money is of course a concern but before we thrust the job of creating brand new originals on our set designers I thought I would pose this question to you. (seemed an appropriate Halloween subject as well)

Thanks a million! Cheers!

Maybe this small theater company can help you. The poster image on that page was created by their graphic designer; I'm not sure how large it could be printed, but maybe he has a file he could e-mail to your local printing shop, or other source material.

Actually, reconsidering, I'm not sure where that image came from. But you could always ask.
