Product description

Recruitment, propaganda, rationing, fundraising - during the First World War posters were used to inform and rally the public as never before. Many of the designs remain icons today, for example Kitchener's pointing hand or 'Daddy, What Did YOU do in the Great War?'. This book has those, plus forgotten gems from Britain, Germany, France, Italy and America. A fascinating slice of social history and a wonderful resource for designers.
