    Description

    World War I Propaganda (U.S. Government Printing Office, 1917). Third Liberty Loan Poster (20" X 30") "Weapons for the Liberty."
    This poignant image of a Boy Scout handing Lady Liberty a sword engraved with the motto "Be Prepared" comes courtesy of artist Joseph Christian Leyendecker. One of the most preeminent illustrators in America during the early 20th century, Leyendecker is best known for his poster, book, and advertising illustrations. He produced a staggering 300 covers for The Saturday Evening Post, and his wartime posters, with their stirring, nostalgic imagery, have a devoted following. This poster has been restored on linen to address some very minor signs of wear: two small chips in the left border, two small tears in the bottom border that extend slightly into the image. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
