Ideas for Framing:
"Framing should be simple, elegant, and timeless. In my
opinion moldings should be wood and never metal. I suggest you choose a simple gold wood frame (not gold leaf) and
regular glass for posters, matted prints, and framed calendar pages. Family
drawings and limited editions like BROCADE and
CHINTZ should always be under
one-sided non-glare as opposed to the old cloudy and distorted regular non-glare glass.
If you use mats, always double mat artwork, and if you want colored mats, keep the
color on the small 1/4 to 1/2 inch inner mat with a wide 4 inch soft white top mat.
This helps to focus on the art. As a rule you will spend much more
on framing than on your print or poster, but in my opinion that is the price you
pay to have it done well."
Your framer can help you select a very simple, small, and inexpensive wood

mat and a gold wood frame with regular glass.
The framing for these special prints is more expensive because they require two
over sized acid-free mats and one-sided non-glare glass. I suggest you deviate from the norm
and make your inner mat 1/2 inch wide in gold foil or soft white and make the
top mat 4 inches soft white. My preference on limited editions is the two soft
When you have a poster
inscribed by the artist it is nice to leave the name and the border on the image
and not use mats. Choose an inch wide simple gold wood frame and regular
glass or one sided non glare glass.
Liberty Collector Plates:

more impressive if you order a wood and glass hexagon frame for the wall from your local
