Images of the Week: USIA Paper Shows

by on November 1, 2013


This week I’m posting several examples of posters from the series Paper Show Exhibition Poster Sets, ca. 1974 – ca. 1994 (306-PSP). These posters were created by the United States Information Agency for exhibits they referred to as “Paper Shows”, which were pieced together using multiple posters to create a multi-panel display. The entire series was recently digitized by our Digital Imaging Lab, with the majority of the exhibit panels only being available for viewing in the Still Picture Research Room at Archives II in College Park, MD due to possible copyright or other intellectual property restrictions.
