17th Colorado International Invitational Poster Exhibition Posters are Now Online

“Save Me” by Horng-jer Lin of TaiwanPosters competing in the 17th biennial Colorado International Invitational Poster Exhibition (CIIPE), can now be viewed at lib.colostate.edu/posters. The site, which displays posters from around the world, features a searchable database of posters from the 7th to 17th shows (1991-2011) and an artist database of biographical information.

In addition to numerous search and browse options, the site offers a variety of resources to learn more about posters and the art of graphic design. Recently added to the site is the ability to translate pages into one of more than 50 different languages with the click of a button.

The public can view the original posters by visiting the International Poster Collection held by Colorado State University’s Archives and Special Collections in Morgan Library. It contains nearly 2,000 posters from past CIIPE shows, including 24 by this year's Honor Laureate, Leonardo Sonnoli of Italy.
