I had a post rumbling around in my subconscious but was too lazy to tie it all together.

Great site!

I'd like to find a source for very large digitized images of propaganda posters; something that can be printed on a large format plotter. Any ideas?

Excellent site. Much as I enjoy Soviet propaganda posters, I've seen a lot of them and was prepared to take a quick glance and move on, but the accompanying texts are excellent—you could learn a lot of history by reading them. Great post!

But what about this?

Also, similar post, Chinese style.
