Collection of World War I and II posters.
During World War I & II many European and American civilians were encouraged by their government to buy National Defense bonds or subscribe to national loans to finance the huge military expenditures, fill the growing deficits, and support soldiers. In France, in particular, the campaign was popularized by poster campaigns designed to stimulate generosity and a large number of artists participated (ex. Francisque Poulbot and Georges Redon). The posters were symbolic propaganda tools.
18 Sheets (18 posters and one cookbook)
