State Library Victoria has a significant collection of British, French and Australian WWI posters. As the war progressed, changes emerge in the content and themes of the images; through recruitment, the symbolism of women and to our heroes on the Front.

Howard Arkley (1951-1999) is acknowledged as one of the most important artists in contemporary Australian art. His archive was acquired by the Library in 2011 and consists of hundreds of drawings, sketches, watercolours, photographs and diaries which give insights into Arkley’s planning processes, influences and reading.
