I came across these two sites recently: Transnational Poster Art and Cuban Poster Art Archive. They are both full of several pages of posters - a lot of political propganda posters. This art form is extremely interesting to study. Many of the great graphic designers we study in this country, originally came from Europe so it is nice to see collections of work from designers from other countries.
The Cuban poster site has over 60 posters listed with credits. The only problem is that you can't enlarge the images. Bummer. But many of the posters can be bought at this online gallery. The gallery site also has larger versions to enjoy.
The Transnational site is interesting in that it covers work from East Germany and Latin America - most specifically Chile and Nicaragua. There is also a whole section on Anti-USA Posters with posters going up to 1986.Posted by erin at 02:04 PM | in History
