    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $125 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.

  • "We are tired of war: of laos, of vietnam, of God know where else, of missiles, of men in armies--of nations of armies, of the deaths of all who are innocent of the knowledge that we all are brothers, and those who are their victims at home and abroad. We are tired of greed (mother of war): and its monuments all around us, trapping the rich--starving the poor--and sometimes, chocking us in our own blind habits of consumption. We are tired of cheap judgments, cheap promises, cheap politics: of law and order which values property over life. We are hungering for peace: violence only escalates and complicates. We need strength: and chose to find it within ourselves, and our fasting (eating no food for a day, days, or weeks, or existing on a welfare budget) and chose to find others for whom our surpluses can mean survival, strength. We need a vision of a sharing, creating, life-serving society: without material values of skin color, cold cash; without imaginary values of status and power. We need tactics, non-violent strategy: sorely (fault finding gets nothing for nobody) our own lifestyles are where we are beginning and we invite you, too, to think, perceive, fast."
