    These posters are all so fabulous. We love to frame for children’s rooms. Thank you Laura Bush.

    Are the download images low-resolution so that people can’t print posters themselves? I have loved so many of these over the years.

    Lisa – The past NBF posters are freely available as downloads at //blogs.loc.gov/national-book-festival/2019/07/national-book-festival-poster-gallery/. We don’t have them available for sale. Thanks for asking!

    Ellen – The downloads are high-res so you can print them. We’re glad you have enjoyed the posters!
