Folger Library Digital Image Collection

I briefly visited the Folger Shakespeare Library a few years ago and was delighted to see exhibited an array of fascinating Shakespeare playbills, many British but some for performances in the United States.

Those ephemera which have been digitised are online through Luna. I searched for Playbill (49 results).

Ephemera collections, scrapbooks and playbills are not included in the Folger's online catalogue, Hamnet, but there is an online finding aid to Garrick playbills (552 items).

There is also a fascinating blog post about the conservation of tinsel prints.
