Throwback Thursday: Animal Posters

This week in the Archive, we’re looking at animal posters!

Did you know that you could order posters through Scholastic Book Clubs? The Archive has a massive collection of posters that were available for order through Clubs flyers, depicting all things pop culture — from cars to movies to boy bands. Of course, I zeroed in on all the ones featuring animals, which also came with great titles like “Get Wrapped Up in Reading” and “Pup Rock.” We even have a poster that OOM blogger Mackenzie dug up from her basement, which she bought (and framed) when she was in elementary school!

You can check out what we found below. Were any of these hanging on your bedroom walls? (And if you can’t get enough of the cuteness, here’s a post dedicated entirely to kitten posters.)
