What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good. The poster had an area of paper loss starting at the top crossfold and extending down 6", and it affected the girl's chin, necklace, and her upper chest. There was also paper loss in the left of Hudson's hair, with a tear down below it running through Hudson's eye and cheek. There were some other areas of paper loss in the vertical foldline and some creases, tears, and tiny paper loss on the horizontal folds, with pinholes, creases, and tears around the edges. Overall, the poster was in fair condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was pretty well backed given the above defects, and it displays pretty well, but you can see signs of the above defects and the restoration of the above defects from close up.
