The sheet is affixed to the mount with a tab of adhesive tape at each corner. The lower edge of the poster is slightly raised from the blue backing sheet and there is one very minor isolated area of delamination in the lower third but all other elements appear securely adhered. There is a possible loss to the centre of the right edge. There is one or two very minor tears to collaged elements towards the upper right corner. There are some remnants of adhesive visible to the collage. One or two corners of collaged elements are creased or rounded. There is some evidence of minor glue staining in a small number of places, only visible upon close inspection. There is very minor surface dirt and one or two instances of matter and detritus. This excepting, the work appears in very good overall condition.
The work is window mounted and held behind glass in a stained wooden frame.
