Posters tell stories of social and cultural history. The V&A’s poster collection is the largest in the UK, and documents public opinions, political causes and protests since the 19th century.

Get up close to examples of trailblazing posters from the V&A's collections with Zorian Clayton, V&A Curator of Prints, as he shares the stories and processes behind these prints.

Sign up for your free slot on the day in the Sackler Learning Centre at the V&A from 13.00.
