This Flickr site has some wonderful images relating to the history of graphic design and photography. From El Lissitzky (above) to the Bauhaus and Samurai film posters. A very eclectic mix. Link>

If you like the work of El Lissitzky and his contemporaries, then head to MOMA for a site dedicated to the Russian Avant Garde book arts from 1910-1934. Of particular note is the “reading room” where you can flick, page-by-page through some of the books. They are pretty amazing. Link>

The London Transport Museum have put online over 5,000 posters, covering a century of outstanding poster design. If you like old travel posters, this is the place for you. Link>
