    World War II Propaganda (Office of the Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs, Early 1940s). Folded, Very Fine+. Poster (14.25" X 20"), "New Order of the Axis," Edward McKnight Kauffer Artwork.
    American born Edward McKnight Kauffer (1890-1954) studied art at the California School of Design, the Art Institute of Chicago, and in Paris. In 1914, he moved to London, and remained there for most of his career, creating 140 posters for the London Underground and London Transport. He crafted his pieces in varying styles that included elements of vorticism, cubism, futurism, abstractism, and impressionism. This very scarce and disturbing image is the first time Heritage has offered this poster. The Office of Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs in the Executive Office of the President was formally established and enacted in 1941 by President Roosevelt who named Nelson Rockefeller as the Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs (CIAA). The agency's function was to distribute news, films and advertising, and to broadcast radio, in and to Latin America in order to counter Italian and German propaganda there. Indications of handling include light edge and fold wear, slight creases, and a minute tear. Folded, Very Fine+.
