    Wow! So many great posters this April.
    I've been outta commission for a bit, but I did pick up some 'vintage' paper.

    Great Haul Ted, liking the Beast with 5 fingers...

    Crikey Wil, take some advice from Rosa, and chase this thing, I'm not sure I'd let him put that right, I'd prefer to get it fixed else where...

    And on the plus side, last ones of the month...

    Picked-up this press book...

    And couldn't resist these two...

    Wow Paul...dont know where you find these treasures but they sure are gems. The Vikings is a fantastic film !

    Sure thing, yeah I think his work load is pretty heavy, yet he's more focused on making fast money than maintaining high standards. 

    Again, the lack of ownership of faults is my main gripe. Once he's finish what he's currently working on such as my orange bullets, Godfathers and advance deliverance (which I believe he's already started :( ) I may well ask for the rest back and look elsewhere. I've used Poster Mountain and a few others over the years, but the distance and pricing prompted me to give the local guy a chance.

    Wow. Those hairs, creases & pen work surprise me. All of that would point to the work done by the restorer. Ive had one poster develop creases outside the fold lines and that was The Jackpot. I had major separations along three fold lines and did not get it back inline correctly prior to laying it down on the Masa. As for hairs? And the pen work? More attention to detail it would seem. I would certainly think there would be someone in Australia who can step up and provide solid linenbacking.

    I think you all know I have seen more linenbacked posters than anyone, and what you posted is 100% caused by incorrect backing.

    Cut your losses, get back what you can, live with the rest (or have it corrected at added cost) and ask around for someone good and affordable.

    Best of luck!

    It's the worst when a paint brush hair gets under a poster.  You don't really find out about it until it dries. Dario recommended using dark brush so you can see them better.

    I am thinking an expirement is in order for the wrinkles.  I've been thinking a bit and have hypothesized that if for some reason he applied the poster having large moisture differentials where one part might take longer to dry than the other, these wrinkles might occur.  I'll have to design something to test this.
