ABBOTT & COSTELLO, Une affiche de film originale

This poster was likely used as a “template” poster to announce a variety of Abbott and Costello movies since there is a large banner at the base of the poster to write in the film titles. Several holes and a very tattered margin together with numerous deep creases meant this linen backing job fell into our Tier 3 – Tier 4 Category. Additionally, a common problem with older posters is browning of the paper resulting from acids in the paper; in some cases this can be neutralised by bathing the poster in a controlled alkali solution, however, this poster was too fragile to handle and was instead subjected to a “misting” following linen backing.  For more details on out restoration guide CLICK HERE.
