Imperial War Museum Poster Collection
Whilst researching my PhD I had great hopes of access to the Imperial War Museum’s poster collection, but was restricted to the few hundred in the onsite art collection (which are still an amazing collection) .
In 2002 however, Manchester Metropolitan University, under the leadership of James Aulich, received funding to digitise 10,000 posters from the collection. Digitised copies of the posters are available from the Imperial War Museum Collections online, and VADs (most subject to copyright/image rights, etc.).
Mass Communications Academic, @MMUBS. British Home Front Propaganda posters as researched for a PhD completed 2004. In 1997, unwittingly wrote the first history of the Keep Calm and Carry On poster, which she now follows with interest.
