Custom Framed and Matted – Colorized Page One
For the discerning Big Loo collector. This is a masterfully executed presentation of Page One of the Original Instruction sheet that came with the Big Loo Robot, circa 1963. This page has been carefully restored and colorized by a professional artist for an updated look and an amazing eye popping appearance.
All line work is as original except the black & white halftone of the full-size robot has been replaced with a high resolution full color example which is similar in orientation. The line work and graphics are impeccable and retains the original artists’ occasional overruns and minor mistakes. We resisted the temptation to fix any of these imperfections and now you can view them in superb resolution.
To achieve this result, we sought out a pristine example of the Original Instructions and then quadruple imaged them on a Hi-Def scanner. Then our professional artist went to work restoring all the lettering drop outs and faded line work as even the best originals were economically printed which did not lend themselves to being reproduced in high resolution. Meticulous colorization was employed to simulate Big Loos’ signature color scheme and complementary hues were applied to lettering and supporting graphical elements.
The instruction sheet is printed in color on fine art satin photographic paper in super high resolution. The frame itself is professionally assembled and double matted with a sealed dust cover on the back. The larger top matte is referred to as super white and the bottom matte is black. The acid-free double matte presents this historical out-of-print artifact in the sophisticated manner it deserves. As you may know, the Marx Toy Co. went out of business in 1979.
Finish on the frame is satin black and is constructed of MDF material. The final outside dimensions of this custom frame are a giant 23 X 28. The instruction framed page itself is 17 X 22 just as originally supplied along with Big Loo. The frame comes with sturdy mounting hardware already installed and the heavy duty hanging wire is pre-strung. It’s ready to hang and enjoy right out of the box.
