The Terry Posters collection consists of over 16,000 posters from Czechoslovakia between 1930 and 1989. All posters are original prints from the year stated in the poster description- no copies or reprints. Posters labeled “not for sale” are represented by a single piece in our collection, and therefore we cannot put them up for sale.
