    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. Backing is what we recommend for framing, and for any poster needing restoration.

  • The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (RKO, 1947). James Thurber wasn't too happy with the Sam Goldwyn film adaptation of his 1939 short story, but the Technicolor musical comedy proved to be a cash cow at the box office. Danny Kaye stars as Walter, a milquetoast proofreader who is constitutionally incapable of standing up for himself, which is why his mother (Fay Bainter) has been able to arrange a frightful marriage between her son and the beautiful but overbearing Gertrude Griswold (Anne Rutherford). Daydreaming his way through life, he's half convinced that a gorgeous woman (Virginia Mayo) who really is being pursued by a gang of jewel thieves headed by Dr. Hugo Hollingshead (Boris Karloff) is just part of his fantasy. Kaye considered this his best screen performance, as do many critics.
