Today I stumbled across this gigposter prominently featuring Harry Houdini advertising a show by a band called the Detroit Cobras at the Majestic Theater in Detroit where, the designer says, "Harry Houdini played his final show at the Majestic Theatre (not the Garrick) in Detroit." This seems at odds with wikipedia, but alas, I don't have my !!! volume by Silverman at hand to verify. Nevertheless, here's the poster:

Some further poking around the same site yielded another nifty modern Houdini poster: this unusually angled, stylized portrait:

The first one appears (to me, anyway) to be a composite illustration drawn from two separate sources: the body is from the well-known photograph used on the cover of Silverman's !!! bio, and while I can't place the reference image for the face it looks very familiar.
I'm not at all familiar with any reference image for the second one. Does anyone recognize it?
Both are pretty nifty, imho.
