There are the four known poster styles for the film. Perhaps the most significant is the Australian One-Sheet; it may be incomplete, but it shows the murder scene, with the weapon (the knife on the table) central to it's design. The murder scene is also depicted (in 2-4) below.

      1     Hitchcock's second cameo appearance (reading on the left) is one of his best.
   2-4     The artist's studio, murder scene and aftermath.
   5-6     In the pub, the murder is discussed, and the blackmailer confronts his victims.

There is just one complete set of lobby cards for "Blackmail", all of which have had their borders partially removed. The final lobby card displayed here (number 6) has had its borders replaced (i.e. from another card). I haven't seen the other cards.
