Retronaut has collected a huge gallery of posters from both sides of the Spanish Civil War that come from the Biblioteca Nacional de España site.
Posters from the Spanish Civil War
“Remember the war against Franco, that’s the kind where each of us belongs; they may have won all the battles, we had all the good songs posters!”
today we may have twitter and facebook for our popular (or otherwise) uprisings, but last century had some damned fine graphic design.
That machinist sure likes his handiwork on that lathe!
CBC Radio recently aired a very good documentary about Canadians who volunteered for the International Brigades. The interviews were done 50 years ago and were never aired until now. It’s here, if anyone is interested.
UCSD’s Southworth Collection has many Spanish Civil War (and Social Revolution) posters, with background information.
No way Spain could win: Caught between Fascism and Communism and Socialism.
Gorgeous posters. I presume some of the language is Catalan?
It is indeed.
