A collection of 75 missionary posters from the Religious Tract Society. The posters were issued from their Headquarters in Shanghai and Hangchow between 1933 and 1942.
Posters are in a calligraphic style and are designed in the form of a vertical scroll. The majority of the collection is made up of larger, Chinese-influenced posters, which are a curious hybrid style mixing biblical allusion, native costumes and architecture in a Chinese landscape. Other posters are based on the biblical illustrations of Harold Copping (1863-1932), who was a prolific RTS illustrator.
