Vintage map open brief.
I was given the exiting challenge of framing this vintage map for a customer, to showcase the print, rather than placing it in a generic mount and frame.
I decided the map should be floated mounted away from the back board, allowing the curled corners and creases to be visible.
To highlight the print I chose a medium grey back board, and window mounted in a Snow-White black core board. The window mount is positioned away from the back board and artwork, creating depth and allowing the map to hang naturally.
Framed in a flat black wood moulding for a classy contemporary finish, and glazed with True Vue Conservation clear glass for UV protection.
