Anarchist posters: Spain 1936 and more
I recently stumbled upon a french site which has an amazing collection of anarchist graphic work, from the times of the Paris Commune and the Spanish Revolution, through to May 68 and today. Posters are heavily featured, but anarchist stamps, money (if you can call it that), broadsheets and publications are all there too. The collection of Mujeres Libres and anarchist CNT-FAI posters from the Spanish Revolution are simply dazzling; as a (sometimes) poster maker it's truly inspiring to see the quality of both the craft and content of theses works.
Use google to translate the site from French to English, or simply let the visuals do the talking.
