    Description

    World War II Propaganda by Norman Rockwell (U.S. Government Printing Office, 1943). OWI Poster No. 46 (40" X 56") "Ours to Fight For...Freedom From Fear." War.
    Norman Rockwell did a series of WWII posters for the US Government in the early 1940s, using images that had appeared in The Saturday Evening Post. This subtly powerful poster features a scene of parents tucking their children in at bedtime, while in the father's hand is a newspaper with the partial headline "Bombings Ki...Horror Hit...," a grim reminder of the ongoing war. An unrestored poster that displays signs of use. May include light edge or fold wear, slight fold separations, very minor paper loss/ paper chips, signs of toning, or unobtrusive stains. There is cellophane tape on the verso along the fold separations. Please see full-color, enlargeable image above for more details. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
