Wartime cartoons, propaganda and posters at King's College, London

The staff of Special Collections at King College, London Library have mounted several online exhibitions which relate to ephemera or political cartoons.  The cartoon in wartime propaganda relates the history of propaganda cartoons and discusses types of propaganda, with sections on modern propaganda, posters, pamphlets air leaflets, and recruitment posters, and issues such as morale. Each essay is well illustrated, notably from the dispersed Foreign and Commonwealth Office Library collections, some of which are at King's College. Another online exhibition of interest to ephemerists is The Duke of Wellington.

Ephemera are also being surfaced through The Serving Soldier, notably  World War One Posters
