I love this old Harrison Ford poster encouraging you to “Read” books:

Harrison Ford for America’s Libraries

I wish more celebrities these days were putting out this kind of positive message.

    Do you own this poster? If so, and if you’d be interested in selling it please email me at (or IM me at “The HarrisonFord”). Myself and my little brother are both huge fans and his birthday is coming up.

    I had one of these growing up. Don’t know what happened to it. My mother brought it home for me from the library.

    I have this poster! I got the catalog the library uses to order their supplies…just ask how to get a catalog. The poster was $6.00 with shipping. That was a few years ago, but alot of people are still asking about the poster. They also have posters (classic Star Trek crew), bookmarks, etc.

    Does anyone know what is the book that Harrison Ford is holding? You can always make out which book it is in other posters.

    I echo that. The “For America’s Libraries” are one of the best celebrity positive messages I know of. Orlando Bloom’s poster featured J.R.R. Tolkien’s works (of course!).
