    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and give support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself.

    The price of this poster includes linen backing.

  • "Made by School of Lithography" This is a rare college poster for a student performance at the Mechanics Institute in Rochester New York. In 1944 this became the Rochester Institute of Technology. As the school in 1921 was all male, it is likely that the show included an all male cast with women's parts performed in drag. This was common at the time with MIT staging an annual all male "Tech Show" complete with chorus line.
