Restoring Vintage Travel Posters

We recently added about 200 old travel posters to our collection.  I have been working on them for about a month.  Restoring old posters has become a passion for me, I honed my skills by restoring old photographs.  Working with photos and illustrations at the pixel level, the image becomes a whole different world.  I work at the pixel level to remove scratches, stains, minute pieces of dust and lint.   Often it is necessary to repair tears and sometimes pieces of the poster are missing requiring re-construction of the area.  I enjoy this type of work very much and take great pride in the restored poster when finished.  I find fixing these old posters and prints to be very relaxing, very calming.  Before I start each poster, I look at it as a new challenge, especially ones which have seen a hard "life" with lots of stains, tears and scratches.  I always challenge myself to give this poster a new life, to make it available once again to the admiration of people who enjoy old poster art.

Here is a few of the 200 which I have been working ....
