WPA posters – Library of Congress

Taking a hint from type designers Hoefler & Frere- Jones in their news post here, I took some time and went through the amazing collection of WPA era Federal posters from 1936-1941 at the Library of Congress online digital collection. The posters highlight great illustrations and use of typography, and an evidently rampant epidemic of syphilis.

You can find dozens more, and download them at hi-resolution, here.
