About this picture

Description

A set of ten posters from the early 1950s aimed at informing an educated audience about the life-cycles of some of China's most prevalent parasites. There is sufficient text and detail on the posters (including drawings of the parasites magnified) to infer that these posters were directed at a medically-trained audience. Each poster bears multiple drawn colour illustrations (information from John Constable, 2007)
