    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $65 and take approximately 4 weeks.

    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 Alexian Brothers' Novitiate manor house located in Gresham, Wisconsin was built in 1939 as a residence, converted into a novitiate for the Alexian Brothers' order in 1950 and ceased to be used as a novitiate, following the 1968 Second Vatican Council. The building is best known for being seized by the Menominee Warrior Society, a subset of the American Indian Movement, in 1975, with demands that it be turned over to the nearby Menominee Indian Reservation.

    From a collection of over 100 posters collected in the 1970s at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
