    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.

    Schleger moved to New York where he worked as a magazine paste-up artist and freelance advertising designer. He adopted the signature Zero, a wry comment on his status as a designer. In 1929 he returned to Berlin to work for the German office of W.S. Crawford. Schleger arrived in England in 1932 where his contacts among Crawford’s modernist designers, notably Edward McKnight Kauffer RDI and Ashley Havinden RDI, helped establish him at the centre of London’s avant-garde design community. As a result of his success Schleger stayed in Britain and became a naturalized citizen in 1939.
