About the Collection
Special Collections has a good collection of dramatic posters from the Spanish Civil War 1936-1939. This collection is part of the Ethel McDonald Collection on the Spanish Civil War, and is related to the Guy Aldred Collection on radical and anarchist politics.
This colourful collection of fifteen highly stylised propaganda posters illustrate the passion and absolute commitment to the Republican political cause in 1930s Spain. This conflict became a battle between left and right-wing political standpoints and with the support of Nazi and Fascist governments, the Civil War was one of the bloodiest in Europe since the First World War.
