About this Collection

Since physicist and Silicon Valley pioneer Jay Last started collecting citrus box labels in the 1970s, the Last Collection has grown to more than 200,000 prints, posters, and ephemera of mostly American origin, and contains works by more than five hundred commercial lithographic companies. Digitized materials from the Last Collection include examples of commercial art documenting consumer culture, social history, and American lithography.
