Parsa Fallahi: Posters from the First World War, 1914–1918

The Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin features 121 posters from the First World War. There are a variety of posters in English, French, German, and Russian. The topics of the posters range from recruitment advertisements to safety protocols in case of an attack. The database allows one to narrow the search by subject, creator, identifier, date, and format. The search bar searches for key words and returns all posters relevant to the key words entered. The advanced search bar is quite useful, allowing one to search for all words, any words, and exact phrases and by title, creator, date, subject, etc. The posters do not have citations, although there is a contact email that can be used to request additional information. Every poster includes the title, creator, date, language, and description, among other information. Posters that are not in English have English translations provided. Overall, the database is very simple to navigate and provides a great amount of detailed information about each poster.
