Restored 1958 Dan Reisinger Brussels Exposition Poster

It’s taken me a while, but I finally got around to having my Dan Reisinger 1958 Brussels World’s Fair poster restored. “Restored” is perhaps a strange term here—when I received it, it was in its original condition: folded five times. These posters advertising the 1958 Exposition in Belgium had been mailed out in envelopes, and so in order to get it to look good in a frame, I had it professionally linen-backed. The folds were ironed out, and so the composition of the poster really shines now. So I’d say it’s more “improved” than “restored.” Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get a very good shot of it on the wall due to reflection, but hopefully at some point I’ll figure out a way to capture this thing in all of its glory. (Update: new clear photo above, thanks to Alyssa’s ingenious suggestion to shoot from the floor.) Check out how it used to look in the original post.
