The Library of Congress is home to thousands of graphic art prints created between 1700 and 1900, many of which have been digitized and are available for browsing on this website. Those familiar with the history of graphic arts may be interested in conducting a text search or browsing the collection by Creator, where prints are organized alphabetically by the artist or design company. Alternatively, visitors can browse this collection by Subjects (which include almost 10,000 tags, such as Advertising, Ice Skating, and Emiliano Zapata) or by Formats (which include Allegorical Prints, Maps, and Woodcuts). This diverse collection highlights the many uses of popular graphic arts over two centuries of printing technology.
