Reprints of old Czech posters that are marked "Reprint by the Communist Party of
Czechoslovakia [probably from the 70's] " are available in very limited quantites. In
fact, we only have a few pieces left.
Many of those prints are in less-than-perfect condition due to negligent treatment before they got to us. Apparently, some of them got moist and humidity took its toll.
We don't want to prepare any unpleasant surprise for you and so we have inspected and counted all the remaining pieces and categorized the damages. Posters were put into nine categories [c0 - c7 and cx]:
Color coding on this picture:
I = slight, almost unvisible damage. Paper is slightly undulated.
II = paper a bit weakened
III = paper is very weak, sometimes even missing, or has rips
The numbers 0 thru 7 stand for the categories c0 thru c7.
|c0 = perfect, mint condition
c 1= almost perfect condition, damages are minimal and almost invisible
c 2 to c 5 = damages limited to a small area
c6 = bigger area involved. The poster will still look good
when framed, eventually professionally restored. Paper is weaker, but still holds together.
- the unmarked areas were not affected at all
- keep in mind that all posters have at least 1cm wide white edge [#888 has 5cm and #885 has 6,1cm wide white edge] - so the actual picture is sometimes not even affected by the damage.
- some poster are positioned horizontally - picture above shows that the damages that were on the left edge on the "vertical" poster are situated on the top of the "horizontal" poster.
Most posters are only available in certain condition categories. Here is the list of posters with all the available categories listed:
