Posters at Harvard

Posters from the Widener Library are being digitised.  6,686 posters from the Thomas Hill collection and 470 from the James Howard Fraser collection are currently online through VIA (Visual Information Access). The main focus of the posters are the German Democratic Republic 1949-1990, and AIDS.

Other posters in Harvard collections are also online through VIA (11,364 hits for 'poster').  Good-size thumbnails are publicly available, but full-size images are restricted to the Harvard community.  Visible records are minimal (title and date) but results can be sorted by creator, title, nationality/culture, work type, date, and materials and techniques.
