Hundreds of original vintage posters, of every genre, including entertainment, military and propaganda, sports, travel, food, film, music and product advertising are represented in the online exhibit. Iconic posters such as Lait Pur Sterilise and The Simpsons Movie are represented as well as many obscure masterpieces including Building for Health and Confitures Bannier. These European, American and Asian masterpieces showcase children of every era including Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Atomic Age, Belle Époque, Moderne, Victorian and more.
