  • 1950
  • Suenaka
  • 24 1/2 x 39 inches ~ (60 x 99 cm)
  • 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.

    Founded in 1926, Northwest Airlines operated until 2008 when it merged with Delta. Following the creation of a hub in Japan in the post-World War II era, the airline dominated the trans-Pacific route and, beginning in 1947, was referred to as Northwest Orient, a name that lasted until 1986.
