Newspaper Pictorials: World War I Rotogravures

presents images published from 1914-19 by two New York newspapers. The images, produced by a new "rotogravure" printing process, show events of the war alongside news and advertisements of the day. Essays discuss the origin of the war, costs of the war, President Wilson's 14 points, the armistice, military technology, the sinking of the Lusitania, "pictures as propaganda," and the rotogravure process. A World War I timeline is included. (Library of Congress)
