About "Postings on Posters"
This weblog was created to document the digitization and cataloging of the Zdenka and Stanley B. Winters Collection of Czech and Slovak Posters, 1920-1991. The Winters donated the collection to UIUC in 1991, with the hope that in the future it would be accessible online, for research and educational purposes, to faculty and students both here and beyond UIUC. Digitization of the collection began in earnest in early Summer 2005, and now that the digital surrogates are being amassed in an image database, cataloging has commenced. In the continued scanning of the posters and the construction of metadata about them, issues inevitably will arise. "Postings on Posters" will keep track of these matters (and provide some context for the next person who works on, or maintains, this project).
