This poster was in excellent condition prior to linen backing, and it was linenbacked very well! The poster now looks great, and I am sure that every collector would be happy to display this poster on his or her wall. The restorer did not attempt to make the poster 'look perfect'. You can still see evidence of the restoration and/or the defects when you look at the poster from inches away, and you may be able to see slight signs of restoration even from a distance. But the poster now looks nice, and I think most collectors would be happy to display this poster on their wall. Note: it is not common for excellent condition posters to be linenbacked. Most often, collectors only linen back posters to repair defects. Quite often it can take an expert to see the extent of the restoration a linenbacked poster has had. I have examined this poster extremely carefully, and I am certain it has had next-to-no restoration!
Pre-Restoration Defects: The poster was folded once down the centre. The white background areas have darkened somewhat. The poster is well linenbacked, and the restored defects are not very noticeable.
The poster now looks great!
NOTE: This poster has also been professionally framed, designed to enhance the colours of the poster itself, and it will be sent to you in that attractive frame.
NOTE: The logo “image over-printed” does NOT appear on the original poster itself.
