before & after

Usually Before & After posts are about items that arrive in the shop having been previously framed.  In this case, there was no frame, but we ended up changing the art from its original state.

Above are front and back views of a vintage 60s brochure for an affordable senior housing high-rise building in Center City.  This is the only known copy of the document.  My client wanted this to be displayed in the building, but wanted to show the whole document.  We talked about framing one side of it and reproducing the other side, but eventually decided to reproduce both sides to keep paper color and inks uniform for a more polished look.

Print reproduction is not a service I offer, BUT I do know a high-quality digital output printer/photoshop service provider and can happily outsource at no inconvenience to my clients.

The project was completed with the reproductions in a sepia 3-opening collage mat, with an elegant charcoal veneer frame.

I made a pocket on the back of the frame to store the original, unharmed document.
