Framing & Storage / Re: Storage for inserts or daybills UK
« Last post by cabmangray on October 22, 2018, 10:40:52 PM »
Andy, I know I've seen large book like binders that daybills and Italian locadinas fit into nicely but I have no idea where you could purchase one. Possibly at a art supply store?

I know of one collector who stores his inserts in custom sleeves he makes himself. He takes a piece of foamcore, NOT brown corrugated cardboard, and cuts it down to a larger than insert or daybill size. He tapes a large piece of plastic or polyester to the back around 3 sides. In this way the plastic is secure, it's top mount, and you can store as many as 5 to 8 inserts in one sleeve, depending on how large the foamcore is cut. Foamcore used in this way is absolutely safe, it's harder to bend than corrugated, and the inserts or daybills are fully protected. Brown corrugated cardboard contains acids that will soak into the posters and in time will brown the surface of anything coming into contact with it.

Good idea about buying a lesser example to complete it. I figure that the chances of ever finding another example of it for sale in any condition is unlikely. Six sheets are pretty uncommon to begin with. Agree that the price was right to pick up something so cool and will likely keep me in the hunt for perhaps the rest of my life.

Great hunting, Iojabba!  It is a great price, and I think definitely worth taking the chance.  If you like the hunt, like me, you can have a lot of fun while you search.  Some good advice from Jayn_j, too.  Good luck!  Okie

Me neither,  I have several, and have been looking for many years with no luck.

Yours being more recent, and from the US, you have a good chance, or as Jay said, find a tatty one and add yours to it..

Personally I think you got a bargain, as I'd rather own a bit than nothing from certain titles.

IMO, a better possibility is to look for a complete poster in poor to fair condition.  Use your partial set to lower the restoration costs.

Personally, I have never heard of anyone finding missing panels from an incomplete 3 or 6 sheet.

Another member posted a partial 3sh that he owns in hopes of finding the top panel, so there is a chance, I think that you could find the other panels (plus a few others)... but a cool score in that you go the sections that show the full mummy!

A neat find, for sure.

Apologies if there is a thread for this already. I looked and didn't find it.

I don't post very often but lurk a bit. What are your thought on incomplete or partial posters? I recently purchased two pieces of "The Mummy" 1959 six-sheet. I understand that the odds of ever completing the poster are slim to none, but I really love it and even half of it looks amazing to me. I suppose if someone here has another portion it could find a home (long shot).

What partials do you have? Is it worth posting them in hopes of reuniting some old paper?
