Broadsides are large pieces of paper with text printed only on the front side, and they have historically had many different uses. Broadsides became particularly popular during the American Revolution, as they were used to quickly notify citizens and soldiers of changing events. Of course, broadsides are not only used for wartime proclamations. They have often used as community or government issued notices, as well as ways to advertise various entertainment events, particularly plays and operas. Another popular use for broadsides has been the printing of poetry, often accompanied by illustrations and the signature of the poet, and these items make great gifts and wonderful works of art.
