A few articles from the American press regarding the political and social impact of the group's posters in France are also present. The bulk of the collection consists of graphical and textual oversized posters. The graphic designs are either based on Picasso's dove or photographs and caricatures of PCF members or Soviet leaders, including Jacques Duclos, Marcel Cachin, Maurice Thorez, Vladimir Lenin, and Joseph Stalin.
