On this page I've put together most of the posters and lobby cards that I've had framed over the years. Tragically a lack of wall space means that many are now leaning against wardrobes and bookcases in various places. Still doesn't seem to stop me getting more framed though..
You'll have to excuse some of the bad photography. I've yet to find an easy way of photographing a poster behind glass without getting glare from either the flash, a window or a light. Suggestions welcome!
Back to unframed posters
|Once Upon a Time in America||Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid|
Once Upon a Time in America was one of the first posters I had framed. The simple frame with the wide matting really makes the photography in the poster stand out.
Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid was the very first poster I ever bought and framed. The box frame design works well with the old western type look of the poster.
|Raiders of the Lost Ark||The Time Machine|
This Raiders of the Lost Ark poster was the first poster I had framed by my local framer (who I still use now). Again a simple design that doesn't distract from the main image.
The handy thing about the Time Machine insert was that it was the perfect size for framing. The simple white frame complements the image nicely; anything other than white would have reduced the impact of all the colours in the poster.
|The Wild Bunch|
Considering i'd been after this poster for 3 years, I had to get this one framed straight away. No expense was spared on this one. UV-glass, conservation mount-board and a fairly pricey frame design. If you're going to frame a poster worth upwards of £400 then it makes sense to spend that little extra on keeping it in good condition for years to come!
|The Deer Hunter|
When I have a set of US Lobby cards, I normally display them in two sets of four. The beauty of the lobby card set for The Deer Hunter is that there was only ever 4 cards in the set, which cuts framing costs in half! Finding a frame to go with the intense blue colouring of the cards was tricky, but I think the final result looks pretty good!
|The Wild Bunch|
Finally I have the matching set of Wild Bunch 1-sheet and lobby cards. At the time when I had these framed I only had 5 out of the 8 Wild Bunch lobby cards, so I had the 4 consecutive ones framed up with the 1-sheet, with the intention of doing the other 4 when I found them. It's taken me another 2 years to find a second mint condition set of Wild Bunch lobby cards, but they're in such good condition that I've had them conservation framed on their own (in two sets of four again). So now this set will remain forever as a pair. I think it still works!
