The Princeton University Digital Library offers a tremendous cornucopia of items stretching back thousands of years into antiquity. This particular collection offers up over 160 posters and 768 lobby cards from across the Middle East. These items were acquired in Lebanon in 2008 and they advertise upcoming films released between 1935 and 2007. Some of these posters are composed on multiple sheets, including some of elaborate 24 sheet displays meant for display on the side of multi-story buildings. Visitors can search the collection by creator and also look for specific film titles. Of course the items are in Arabic, but even those who do not read this language can satisfy their interest by looking at the images and creative advertising designs.
