The pulp Blade Runner cover from this
metafilter post really charmed me and the large sized just became available again today. So I rushed in and got one. Why I'm pretty confident in what frames I like and the conventions that go along with framing "fine" art this is the first "movie" poster I've ever wanted/gotten.
I'd appreciate any info from movie poster fans who've framed and hung their stuff. Particularly conventions regarding matting, frame styles, and the like. I generally end up buying my frames from a place like pictureframes.com
but alternative sources would be welcome as well. I live in the greater LA area so recommendations about local stores who do movie poster work with style and panache would be welcome as well. I mean, it's LA, there's gotta be someone doing this.
