Special Collections

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of the great poster artist John Hassall, 1868-1948, we have put together a special Advent Calendar featuring some of his celebrated Christmas images. We hope you will enjoy these wonderful seasonal cartoons and drawings from yesteryear. 

Are you doing a piece of original research? If so, take a look at the wide range of rare books and archives detailed on our Special Collections pages, and arrange a time to consult them in our Special Collections reading room on floor 1 of the Albert Sloman Library. We have lots of potentially interesting source material for your project or essay, and would love to see you.
