Newspaper Pictorials: World War I Rotogravures

TitleNewspaper Pictorials: World War I Rotogravures
Publication TypeWebsite
Corporate AuthorsLibrary of Congress

A digital collection created by the Library of Congress, this website offers users access to high-resolution images of World War I–era New York newspapers, which used rotogravure, a new printing process with improved quality of the illustrations they could recreate on inexpensive newsprint. The era's newspapers had vivid pictoral sections that, although the newspapers as a whole were long ago microfilmed for preservation, were unable to be reproduced in that medium with sufficient resolution. Containing several hundred images and browsable according to various criteria, these collections have relevance to students or researchers interested in the shifting press coverage in the United States about the war in Europe and, by extension, the changes in popular sentiment.
