Hello everyone,

I'm desperately trying to find a poster to get my girlfriend for christmas. She's currently spending a year in France for her degree and is very into fencing; a few months ago (around the time of the Olympics) I saw this poster for sale in a shop but didn't get it:

I'd really like to get it for her, but all I can find anymore are 'vintage' auctions selling at a lot over the price/internationally (and as much as I love it and her, I don't quite fancy paying an exorbitant fee just for a poster). I know there should be some kicking around the UK for about 15 but can't for the life of me find one.

Anyway, I know that most Warseers are better than me at finding things, so I implore anyone - if they have a few spare moments - could you help me out?

Cheers,

James

Had a look the poster is called CONCOURS INTERNATIONAUX S'ESCRIME 1900 and comes in at arond $40-80. Can't seem to find any EU suppliers and eBay is dry... will have another look later.

That's still quite a lot for just a poster... I was really looking for something under 20/15.

Olberon, I haven't even managed to find that yet! Any help would be appreciated though :)

It may sound silly, but sometimes with things like this, google reverse image search can be useful

Late to the party, certainly, but it might be worth it when looking for presents at other times if she's at all into traditional Geek staples.

Look for this in any form suited to her? (http://shirtoid.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Han-Sulu.jpg)
