Tier 2 Restoration example. Lots of tape on the verso of the poster – all this tape has to come off before linen backing. There are dozens of types of tape some easy and some hard to remove.
In this example we had numerous acid burns resulting from masking tape which had been used to repair small tears along the margin. We had to remove the stains using a solvent and then re-match the color of the margins with watercolors. Fortunately the image itself was fine and needed nothing. An example of a Tier 2-Tier 3 restoration. Original condition of this poster was a C4-C5 Restoration has improved the overall appearance a lot – well worth undertaking for popular poster!
