    Description

    Collection of 13 World War I Posters- All Different. This lot consists of 13 different posters produced during World War I; for Liberty Loans, rationing, recruitment, and memorial. World War I was the first conflict in which poster art played a major part in educating the public on what was going on overseas. Posters allowed artists to illustrate the war in images that the public could understand and even make the conflict tangible. Included in this lot are the following posters: (All posters are approximately 30"- 40" tall) -- "Soldiers-Sailors And Women Guests - Welcome To the Y.W.C.A." by Walter Tittle; "We Need You" by Albert Steiner; "United America" by Charles Howard Walker; "Over The Top For You!" by Sidney Reisenberg; "Service Fall In! - National League For Woman's Service" by Lucile Patterson; "War Gardens Victorious" by Macinel Wright Enright; "Teamwork Wins" by Hibbard Van Buren Kline; "Together We Win" by James Montgomery Flagg; "Fighting Symbols" a poster depicting various symbols and emblems of the U.S. fighting forces; "Will You Have A Part?" by James Montgomery Flagg; "You Work Means Victory" by Fred J.
