What is the Best Method to Preserve Vintage Posters?

Expert vintage poster collectors use linen backing or linen mounting as the best method to preserve their poster art collection. This conservation method provides stability and strengthens the poster by pasting it to a thin sheet acid free paper and light cotton canvas, using an archival wheat paste. This technique has been proven effective in minimizing damage & tear, and removes the wrinkles of old-aged posters. Linen backing makes it easier to handle and frame vintage posters.

In fact, many people display horses in their homes (including sculptures, figurines, and paintings) because they believe it brings good luck.
