This was a great project! It is 1969 early blacklight poster, Sweet Cream Ladies. There are some serious condition issues, but the poster has great sentimental value. It was framed as a special gift for the person who values it most.
The item arrived torn & crumbly. The paper was so old and the ink so heavy and saturated that it threatened to deteriorate with any more handling. I used the same method of mounting as I did with that vintage silk square a few months ago, by first getting the fusion film on the art face-down, and then carefully trimming it out and and mounting it face-up. In this way, the art is mounted all over, to the end of every jagged edge, and future deterioration is prevented. UV glass and spacers complete the conservation.
I think this manner of framing displays the art as an item with history--well-traveled and well-worn. <3
