Broadsides & Posters from the National Archives.
National Archives and Records Administration, Washington, DC.
This booklet evolved from research for the exhibition "Uncle Sam Speaks: Broadsides and Posters from the National Archives," which opened at the National Archives in February 1986. The booklet is presented chronologically, beginning with broadsides from the American Revolution and ending with posters of the 1980's. Accompanying text explains the significance of each poster or broadside. This publication attempts to show a variety of posted notices that demonstrates how messages remain the same or change over time, and represents some of the interesting choices made through 200 years regarding language, artistic designs, and graphic styles.
