How to browse through thousands of posters from the international movement against nuclear power

This is a collection of posters, not of (digital) images.
So what do we consider a poster?
- it has to be printed (it has to exist on paper, not only as a digital image...)
- multiple copies (more than a single hardcopy)
- it has to be larger in size as A4 (21x29.7 cm)

How to search:
box 1: country of origin;
-narrow number of results by choosing a specific facility (if possible). By doing so you will see all posters about this facility, not limited to a specific country: f.i. Dutch posters on German facility Kalkar or Swiss posters on French Malville or Danish posters on Swedish reactors at Barsebaeck.
box 2: general subjects;
box 3: year of production (if known or estimated date);
Combined search box: facility AND Subject AND Year
box 4: full text search. it is also possible to search within results of the first three boxes

The results:
Results are listed chronological (new-old)
- main text on poster;
