“The University of Nottingham’s rare collection of Soviet war posters is unique in the UK, and is one of the largest internationally.Now they are online you can breathe in the colours, enjoy the cartoons and comic strips, admire the landscapes, or zoom in to explore the posters close-up in fantastic detail and learn about the posters as art, war propaganda and historical objects.”

Access is via: http://windowsonwar.nottingham.ac.uk/ or the eLibrary Gateway.

  1. Addendum: The website now has new features including hotspots on many of the posters to draw attention to stylistic feature and to provide translations of the Russian text.

    NB: There are also Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr pages for this website:
