World War I Posters
During World War I, the impact of the poster as a means of communication was greater than at any other time during history. Posters were able to inspire, inform, and persuade and were often combined with vibrant design trends. All posters displayed in the Research, Remembrances and Reflections of the Great War exhibition are digital surrogates of original posters housed in the Kansas Collection, Kenneth Spencer Research Library.
