The First World War coincided with a golden age of advertising, and throughout the conflict striking and colourful poster art was used to recruit soldiers, promote investment in the war, keep up morale - and, of course, to vilify the enemy. Prominent artists including Norman Wilkinson paired bold images to punchy text to maximise the pieces' impact, and the selection in this book offers an informative guide to the range of posters used and how British government appeals and messages were displayed around the nation. From the iconic image of Kitchener pointing and declaring 'Your Country Needs You!' to others that take less a less direct approach such as 'Daddy, What Did You Do in the War?' and 'Buy War Bonds Now!', this book puts the reader in the shoes of the First World War 'man in the street'.
