The one consistent line of questioning from both seasoned collectors, and the new purchaser is: preservation of the poster.
The assumption is that a poster under consideration is “collectible”, having a good market value, and worthy of the investment of proper conservation techniques and possible framing.
The aim of preservation of the poster is to retain its authenticity as well as condition and color in the best manner consistent with current archival practices established and practiced world-wide. That “standard” is professional archival linen mounting. This method uses a water-based adhesive to affix the poster to acid free paper, which has already been like-wise affixed to linen. This should only be done by an expert in the field. It is a readily reversible process, but why one would wish to do this eludes me.
