ShanShan Chen, 23, shows her delight at a new exhibition of rare Chinese posters that opens in Edinburgh today.

The free display is being hosted by the Confucitious Institute in Scotland and features 133 artworks and images, including one dating back to 1913 and latter-day exhibits such as a poster marking the British handover of Hong Kong in 1997.

Many of them are on display for the first time in the UK. They can be found at Edinburgh University's Adam House in Chambers Street until July 12.
