What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good. The poster was folded across the middle and it had creases along that fold, with some separation in part of the extra fold. It had minor wear around the edges. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was mounted onto a thin linen with no excess, and unfortunately, after it was backed, it was roughly handled, and it acquired a slightly diagonal crease running through the lower part of Lupino's hair and mouth, and through the forehead and hair of Hayward (it is in both the poster and the linen).
