The Mark del Costello Collection focuses on the American graphic design of the modern era. Numbering nearly 3,123, it includes posters and ephemera related to a wide variety of topics such as music, theater, film, visual arts, product advertising, and political issues. Although most examples in the collection date to the second half of the twentieth century, there are outstanding earlier works by renowned illustrators Howard Chandler Christy and Norman Rockwell. Apart from its artistic significance, the Mark del Costello Collection is also an important source for social history, touching on many of the noteworthy events and movements that have occurred in the United States over the last fifty years.
