Where can I find digitized, downloadable print advertisements that are free for academic purposes?

Specifically, I'm trying to get my hands on print advertisements from Nintendo's "Touching Is Good" ad campaign -- the one that coincided with the launch of the Nintendo DS.

I'll need the advertisements for papers in my graduate Visual Rhetoric class, and potentially for my Masters thesis.

Where can I find a good repository of print advertisements (preferrably organized by campaign), from which ads are available for free?

Are you referring to this sort of thing?

If so, a Google image search turned that up.

Or maybe you're referring to something a little more risque?

There's also this.

Yes, those are very good. Thank you.

Particularly, I'm looking for a site that will host entire print campaigns, so I can view the ads in groups and select one for analysis, instead of having to traverse the Web from one end to the next.

But these are a great start; thanks!

BB - I don't know of such a site, but for your use I would imagine that if you traverse the web and collect the digital images you could put them in one place. This is, of course, assuming you only intend to use them in the course of your teaching. I believe that would still fall under academic fair use.
