  • Linen backed

    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 gives 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.

    The price of this poster includes linen backing.

  • The 13th Labor of Hercules

    Perham Nahl's prize-winning poster for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition. Millions of men, women and children admired this heroic image, which appeared on the maps, book covers and catalogues of the exposition, advertised worldwide. The mythological Hercules is depicted, symbolically standing in for the builders of the Panama Canal, at the point at which they willed their way through the canal’s colossal Culebra Cut.

    One of the rarest and greatest of American posters.
