Prints and Posters
At Hesburgh Libraries and the Snite Museum of Art, our holdings include a vast number of prints and posters, dating from the 18th century to the mid-20th century. Prints are impressions made by any method involving transfer from one surface to another, and posters are ephemera intended to be shared in publicly visible spaces.
This grouping of items represents a small percentage of our digitized holdings. Explore all of the prints and posters.
Peru's Print Revolution
The images in this portfolio were digitized thanks to funding awarded by the Latin Americanist Research Resources Project (LARRP).
They include a corpus of rare nineteenth-century Peruvian serials, ephemeral circulars, and popular song and verse imprints held in the José Durand Peruvian History Collection at the University of Notre Dame’s Hesburgh Libraries. These unique materials support new scholarship on diverse political and cultural topics in Peruvian history. They also offer new insights on the worldwide nineteenth-century revolution in print culture, providing fodder for comparative work by scholars across disciplines. The materials included in this first corpus date to the first half of the nineteenth century.
Walk the Walk Week 2023
