Don't Stand Looking

The Boston Athenæum holds an extraordinary, but little known, collection of World War I posters. Consisting of nearly 1,800 posters from fourteen countries, this collection provides a unique graphic record of the War of Nations. The exhibition, Over Here: World War I Posters from around the World, timed to coincide with centennial celebrations of World War I, will feature highlights from the collection, including approximately 40 framed posters and cases filled with leaflets, maps, magazines, and sheet music covers.
 
Over Here: World War I Posters from Around the World is curated by Catharina Slautterback, Curator of Prints & Photographs at the Boston Athenæum.
