PERSONALITY

INSPIRATION

AMBIANCE The aesthetic appeal of movie posters has elevated their status and transformed them into a unique form of art. Poster art speaks out and conveys a message through the artist’s creative talent and inspiration. As unique pieces of decor, they create a particular mood, define the ambience of the room, and reflect the collector’s personality. They now play a paramount and significant role in modern Interior Design worldwide.....from stately mansions to modern urban condos. Mexican cinema art is generally far superior to American theatre graphics of the same time period.

Digital Master from Original

METICULOUS

TIMELESS

AUTHENTIC Institute conservationists first meticulously prepare each poster for preservation by acid neutralization and “linen backing�. Skilled artists touch up fold lines and imperfections, if needed, using special paper fillers and pigments. The poster is then photographed using accurate, high resolution, high dynamic range imaging. The digital file may then be color matched while preserving the faded elegance and nostalgic beauty of the original poster. The Institute maintains these original posters and digital files as a timeless treasure for future generations.
