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 observances of World War I, will feature highlights from the collection, including forty-four framed posters and cases filled with leaflets, postcards, and book and magazine illustrations.
 
Over Here: World War I Posters from Around the World is curated by Catharina Slautterback, Curator of Prints & Photographs at the Boston Athenæum. The exhibition is accompanied by an illustrated booklet with an essay by Ms. Slautterback.
