RESTORATION OF AN AWARD POSTER FROM 1951 BOLIVARIAN GAMES
An award poster from the Bolivarian Games
is a great example of what even the most damaged document or a photograph can be restored with the help of modern technology.
On this beautiful certificate the repeated folding caused tears along the seams. Clear tape was used to connect the pieces together, resulting in extensive chemical damage to the document. In addition the top of the document was missing completely.
Because of the extent of the damages digital restoration was the only option to save this document and make it presentable for display.
The background was cleaned and all of all tape residues and minor damages were retouched. The missing areas were filled in and the top of the document carefully painted in. The restored image was color corrected and printed on premium archival matte paper readied for framing.
