    Description

    "Joan of Arc Saved France" World War I Patriotic Poster by Haskell Coffin, 1917-1918. "Women of America. Save Your Country. Buy War Savings Stamps. W.S.S. War Saving Stamps issued by the United States Government." 30" x 40", lithographed in bold red, white, and blue colors on white paper by the United States Printing & Lithographic Co. of New York. The Treasury Department used this icon to incite American women to do the same. During the war, over one billion dollars was raised by the sale of thrift stamps and war savings stamps, which were bought primarily by women and children. Haskell Coffin was one of the many illustrators who created a type of girl, the "Coffin girl" was just as well known in its time as the "Christy" or "Gibson" girl. This Joan of Arc poster is probably his best known piece. Several small edge tears repaired on verso, colors bright, overall fine.
