A few years ago I walked into a shop that sold movie posters, and asked the saleslady if she had anything by Saul Bass.
She shook her head and said, rather wistfully: "No. Those are very rare..."
Here are some. For movies he also did titles for, check there.

As a rule, the posters for movies can be found on the movies pages.
Most of those that were hardly or not at all used for release you can find on this page.
Many are available as originals from, and also as reprints.
