Spanish Civil War Posters

The Spanish Archives Portal (PARES) has made available digital images of more than 2,200 posters of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), physically kept at the Documentation Centre of Historical Memory. Posters were produced by all sides in the war, but due to the historical circumstances in which they were collected, there is a great number of posters confiscated by the military forces of Francisco Franco. These include images produced by: masonic groups; anarchists; socialists; and in general any dissident group which did not conform with the official ideology of Franco's dictatorship. The digital collection has been made available for free, and the user can browse all contents, or search by: author; title; editor; printing press; and date.
