An online archive of covers (and some posters) of the British Anarchist newspaper Class War from the 1980s-1990s.
Taken from various online sources, including Anarcho covers on Facebook and a collection of Class War covers and posters on archive.org
Assistance with gaps, chronology etc would be welcome.
Libcom also hosts an online archive of Class War publications here.
