While not strictly book related (more a part of the Odyssey) I came across an extensive collection of Latvian posters which I thought were worth sharing. Despite having a framed interface, it's a fine website with english available.
So from the Latvian Digitālo Bibliotēku site, there are posters from 1899-1945 covering:
Exhibitions; Theatre, Cinema & Circus; Song Festivals; Festivals, Sports & Tourism; Press Publications, Books; War, Social Protection; Elections; Organizations, Parties; Social Issues; Food-Stuffs; Cosmetics; Tobacco; Commodities; Transport; Advertizing Agencies.
There's also a section with different headings covering 1945-2000 but I'm not linking all the individual thumb pages.
