Memorial Day WWII and War Bond Posters
Avenge December 7th
This was one of the early WW II posters with the first printing in 1942 and the artist, Bernard Perlin, created and left a lasting impression to mobilize the War effort. I was lucky enough to find a 28" x 22" recently... with the folds as is the one pictured here. There is something special about owning a piece of history that shows evidence that it was put to its intended use and ultimately saved to be appreciated by others.
This poster is from the 5th loan series which dates to 1944- This one comes in various sizes. The graphics are quite intense. The size I was able to locate is about 20"x14"
The last one I will like is from the 3rd Loan series of 1943- The one I found is 27"x20" which seems to be non-standard size. The graphics capture it all.
Thanks to those that have served our country in all capacities .
