Vintage Poster Restoration

This rare vintage World War One poster came to us in pieces recently. Many posters from WW1 and WW2 have subject matter that transcend the fighting aspect of war and have visuals and content that can enlighten and inspire us today.

This is one such image.

We want to share with you what we can achieve with vintage paper restoration and how remarkable the transformation can be in expert hands.

The art of archival restoration of torn paper by linen mounting posters is not well known. Many people, when they find a torn vintage poster, pass it by.

However, remarkable and relatively inexpensive restoration can be undertaken to make any image, like the one above, beautiful again.

Please contact our Oak Park store to discuss your project today.
