We thank our colleague Jan Grenci, who originally published this on Picture This: Library of Congress Prints and Photos.
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!
