    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $165 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 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. Backing is what we recommend for framing, and for any poster needing restoration.

  • In 1968, the Container Corporation of America created a series of posters entitled 'Aspects of New York City.' They were hung in parks, subways, neighborhood clubs, and churches with the goal of improving the quality of the city's public surroundings. Today, the ten-poster series is known as one of the most inventive and distinguished public arts projects of the 20th century, with a complete set in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.

    Highlighting 125th St and the Apollo Theater, this poster featured Harlem.
