Don’t Let that Shadow Touch Them / Buy War Bonds

Author:  Lawrence Beall Smith (American, 1909-1942)
Publisher: U. S. Government Printing Office

Subject: World War II

Purchasing bonds was considered not only patriotic, but also an investment in victory. While the initial goal of selling war bonds was to finance the war, it had the positive side-effect of raising morale on the home-front. By the end of the war 85 million Americans had invested in war bonds. This poster has a very emotionally effective picture of children playing innocently, with the shadow of the Nazi swastika hovering near them.

USA; offset lithograph on paper, published by U.S. Government Printing Office, 1942.
