Posters and Printed Ephemera

Collection Description

The Wolfsonian has a very large collection of posters, brochures, postcards, and other printed items that served as important instruments of mass communication for governments, corporations, and associations. A strength of the collection is political propaganda from many countries and representing a range of artistic styles. Another strength is commercial advertising, especially for travel and tourism. The collection contains works by many of the key graphic designers of the time, including Herbert Bayer, Lester Beall, Jean Carlu, Ludwig Hohlwein, Julius Klinger, and Edward McKnight Kauffer.
