What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. The poster had small paper loss at the top crossfold and creases, scuffs, and small tears in the top quarter of the vertical foldline and in the right half of the top horizontal fold. There was minor wear on the other folds. There were some small stains in the bottom right background area and some pinholes and faint stains around the edges. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was nicely backed, but after it was backed, it was roughly handled, and there is now a slightly diagonal faint crease running across the top of the poster (running at a slight diagonal through the word "BODY"). It is not very noticeable, except from close up.
