The item measures 30.5" x 40" not including the linen border. Linen-backing is a process to preserve paper. As part of the process the posters are adhered to linen (a reversible process that prevents folds from opening up), cleaned and de-acidified (serving to preserve the color of the poster).
The process creates a vibrant piece of art that is suitable for framing. There has been minor touch-up.
Very minor paper loss on border. The item "Original linen-backed 1918 WWI poster War Savings Stamp 30 1/2 X 40+ RARE" is in sale since Monday, June 19, 2017.
