Signs of Conflict: Political Posters from Lebanon’s Civil War

I recently learned about Signs of Conflict, an on-line archive of political posters from Lebanon’s Civil War covering the years 1975-1990. It’s a very well organized collection. They have two different on-line exhibits that display their collection in two different ways. The first is organized chronologically, identifying each poster by political faction and year. The second¬†focuses on the themes, icons, and symbols found in the posters. Personally, I’ve enjoyed just browsing through the exhibits, but an image database like this could also make for a great teaching tool.¬†
