Moth Damaged 1959 Targa Florio Poster

This poster was a long-distance purchase that I saw only in pictures. If I had seen it in person, I would have noticed some sections were hanging on by a thread. By the time it got to me in a tube, those sections separated and some other pieces literally evaporated into dust.
It didn't make sense to fully restore this example as nice ones can be found but it also seemed a shame just to roll it up and throw it back on a tube so I had my ace poster restorers Fourth Cone Restoration reassemble what was left and linen mount it. I think the results are kind of cool.
Artwork by Strenger features two 550 Spyders and a modernistic graphic element. Measures 33” x 46.5” and mounted on linen. Moth damage...but priced accordingly.

    great design… tricky one to restore. I’ve collected movie posters for over 40 years but had to thin them out to pay for the Porsche build. I have a few automotive ones… I have a full set of Watkins Glen United States Grand prix Michael Turner illustrated posters stored away… I don’t think they’re that valuable but they’re definitely cool.
