Posters from the edge

The Red Cross’ international poster collection on show

No form of publicity brings back such nostalgia as posters. In its Arrêt sur Affiches exhibition, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum presents its collection of posters from all over the world. Since 1988, the collection has grown to over 10,000 posters, dating from 1866 to the present. Fundraising, disease prevention, emergency response, volunteer recruitment – the messages they convey remain as relevant as ever.
