April 2017

This poster is for the 1955 Pan-American Games which were held in Mexico City.

The condition is pretty shitty. It is on old backing, and the paper seems quite brittle and is starting to come off the backing in places.

Was this a job by Posterfix?  :P I kid, I kid.

But I bought it anyway because I think the artwork is pretty sweet.

I really like the design on this one, Delete.  Great native archer! Is this a flea market find?

Late to the part on this one but have to agree it is an awesome piece and should be fixed up imo. Just not posterfix.  ;D

Hi fellas, thanks for the comments. I only just noticed them months after the fact.

This was actually an eBay find. It shipped from Uruguay which is a logical place to find such a poster, being for the Pan-American Games and all.

I would like to have it restored at some point, but for now it is still in the same condition laying safely in my flat file.
