Imagined Realities: World War Propaganda @ Mansfield Library

This exhibit in the Mansfield Library’s Theta Rho Room presents examples of World War I and World War II propaganda that were created from multiple perspectives and published in the United States, Germany, Great Britain and France.

Propaganda can be bold or subtle. It often takes simple facts and twists them to convince people of their worst fears, and it persuades everyday individuals to mobilize against a perceived threat. This exhibit demonstrates how wartime propaganda during both World Wars strategically harnessed the fears and expectations of an intended audience and made them come alive through carefully chosen images and text.

The materials in the exhibit are drawn from original documents held in the World War I Pamphlet Collection (Pam 01) and the World War II Pamphlet Collection (Pam 02) at the Mansfield Library’s Archives and Special Collections. The exhibit will be up through the end of 2019.

Book Illustrators in Special Collections @ Mansfield Library Archives and Special Collections | Missoula | Montana | United States

This exhibit in the Archives and Special Collections Teaching Room features the work of well-known 19th and 20th century book illustrators including Arthur Rackham, Rockwell Kent and Gustave Doré.

Book illustrations draw the attention of the reader and enhance our understanding of written materials. Each illustrator understands a particular text uniquely and draws on their own experiences and artistic style to tease details from the texts that others might have ignored or missed, providing the reader with an original perspective on the story.

The materials in the exhibit are drawn from literary volumes held in the Mansfield Library’s Archives and Special Collections. This exhibit will be up until the end of 2019.
