Havana Poster Restoration, Brittle Paper on a Travel Poster

Havana PanelHavana LBHavana Before This stunning travel poster depicting Pan American flights to Havana was a true basket case when the client gave it to us. Though the colors were still as crisp as the day it was printed unfortunately the paper was too! Improper storage eventually left the paper very brittle and the poster was falling apart with every touch. This was a long job requiring lots of patience and a lot of color matching to end up with a really presentable poster. While this will never attain the value of more than $5000 that this poster has realised in auctions when in pristine condition; it’s still a beautiful piece of travel history. For those willing to accept its faults this poster is for sale – please write us for details.
