Besides being issued in two separate pieces, it had a few tears, pen marks, and rips. Restored by Mario Cueva at Lumiere Poster...best in the biz (IMHO).

Pic is of our 4 year old daughter Scout, literally asking me why we didn't name her Atticus and how she is "really frustrated about it", lols.

What is this? Was there a print made? It's amazing. Love that film. Great score!

I may be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure it's a To Kill a Mockingbird movie poster.

Haha, got lucky with the no damage and even luckier that it was 10 minutes from a job I had this weekend

Dodged a bullet most likely. If a EBer doesn't know how to sell something properly, they most certainly don't know how to ship it either.

Any framing ideas for the Tomer YNBAM? Can't find that neon blue mat anywhere.
