The Imperial War Museum is developing a web resource of Spanish Civil War posters. This is a joint project with the Biblioteca Naçional de España in Madrid, which has a collection of over 500 posters. Presented as a single web-based collection totalling 600 items, the posters will be accompanied by specially commissioned short essays on a number of social, political and design history themes. The Museum's aim is to create an informative, interpretive resource that will be accessible to a wide range of history and design students, as well as those with a general interest in the Spanish Civil War. The site will be bi-lingual in English and Spanish.
