The Philippe Zoummeroff Collection of May 1968 depicts—through startlingly raw and graphical imagery— the explosion of protests that swept across France and nearly toppled the government of Charles de Gaulle.

Many of these posters are on view at the Beinecke as part of the Library exhibition:  The Postwar Avant-Garde and the Culture of Protest, 1945 to 1968 and Beyond on view Tuesday, October 6, 2009 – Saturday, December 19, 2009.
