The Marx Memorial Library's poster collection is a unique resource of over 2,000 items. Areas of specialism include the Soviet Union, the Spanish Civil War, Communism, the British Labour Movement and campaigns in the second half of the twentieth century including those against the apartheid regime in South Africa and the Thatcher government in Britain.
The posters are currently being catalogued for the first time, so the true wealth of this resource is only just coming to light.
The Library has a rotating display of its posters outside its Main Hall, showcasing highlights from the collection.
Prints of a selection of the posters will soon be available to purchase on our online shop.
