Period Paper is pleased to offer a collection of historic World War I rotogravures from 1917, the year that the United States entered the war. This global conflict, known as the Great War (and sometimes as "The war to end all wars"), was centered in Europe beginning 28 July 1914 and lasting until 11 November 1918, and ultimately involved all the worldÕs great powers and cost millions of lives.
About Rotogravure: Rotogravure is a printing method using a rotary press with intaglio cylinders which allows for very high quality halftone reproductions to be printed at high speed on inexpensive paper stock. Newspapers, beginning with The New York Times, were able to make effective use of this technology, and many published regular rotogravure pictorial sections in their publications during the early 20th century.
