  • Thought I'd post some of my posters here from time to time. Might be of some interest to see what was printed in different countries all over the world...
    I started collecting on Wayne in 1979 at the age of 12. By now my archive on him includes some 400 posters and 5000 LC's & stills.
    Here are some of my ALAMO posters:

    Spanish 1960 / 1972 / 1979:


    USA 1960 / 1967:


    FRENCH 1960 / 1965 / 1960 insert + Australian daybill:


    German 1960 / 1960 double panel / 1967:

  • I'm glad you're enjoying them. So I'll continue :)
    As for storing them: I started my archive 30 years ago and I do collect everything I like. And I like a lot. Altogether it's 100.000 items so storing always is a slight problem. Moving is the biggest problem though :)
    Paper is so heavy. I last moved ten years ago but during that operation I almost 'lost' my friends.
    I keep everything in plastic & paper envelopes. Dry & cool (not too cold of course). Avoid moist, water & sunlight and paper holds on pretty good. Posters are mostly folded. Storing unfolded posters I hate because looking at them is always dangerous (resulting edge wear etc.).
    The stuff is everywhere: in the apartement, in the basement...



    But let's continue.
