    Description

    World War I U.S. Propaganda (United States Shipping Board/Emergency Fleet Corporation, 1917). Poster (20" X 30") "The Ships Are Coming."
    This bright modernist image by James H. Daugherty is perhaps one of the most iconic posters from the U.S. Shipping Board's historic campaign, which aimed to strengthen America's maritime capabilities through private endeavors. A restored poster with good color and an overall very presentable appearance. Restoration has addressed pinholes, tears, creases, border chips, and applied touchup to the folds. Paper loss in the upper right corner into the image has been reattached. Grades on all restored items are pre-restoration grades. Please see full-color, enlargeable image above for more details. Fine on Linen.
