Time to smile
In the entrance hall of the library main building there is now an exhibition dedicated to elections in Iceland and printed party propaganda.
On the exhibition there is displayed materials the political parties have published before past elections and its title refers to the photographs of the parties' candidates. The oldest example of election leaflets is from the year 1899 but the main emphasis is on materials produced for the last election in 2007.
The materials on display are from the small print collection of the library national collection, collected from Icelandic print shops through the legal deposit.
The exhibition will be up until after the coming election on April 25.
