Swiss Posters Collection

The Swiss Posters Collection is a Swiss archive which, in a joint effort with various Swiss libraries and museums,[1] offers access to digitized posters covering “a time span from the second half of the 19th century to the present”.[2]

Currently, the posters come from the Swiss National Library, university libraries or libraries in the cantons of Fribourg, Geneva, Neuchâtel and Valais, the Swiss Museum of Transport, the St. Maurice's Abbey as well as the Swiss Film Archive.[2]
