Reading is for Everyone

The collections of the Prints & Photographs Division include many images that depict the act of reading. When I recently prepared a Flickr album on the subject, I had a number of photographs, prints and posters to spare. Let me show you some of the posters that I didn’t use but are equally worthy of the spotlight!

I like books. Poster by Karla Kuslin, 1962. //hdl.loc.gov/loc.pnp/ppmsca.42782

Bring home the world in books. Poster by Paul Honoré, between 1920 and 1930. //hdl.loc.gov/loc.pnp/ppmsca.42683

Explore with books. Book week, Nov. 17-23. Poster by Alice and Martin Provensen, 1957. //hdl.loc.gov/loc.pnp/ppmsca.43161

Trolley trips on a Bay State Triangle. Poster by Charles H. Woodbury, 1897. //hdl.loc.gov/loc.pnp/ppmsca.43608
