    Description

    World War I Propaganda (1917). Poster (28.5" X 41") "Warning!" L. N. Britton Artwork.
    Illustrator L. N. Britton created one of his most vivid posters with this warning about being careless in the workplace. Intended for use in America's factories during the war, it remains one of the most difficult WWI propaganda posters to find. Light touchup has been applied to the folds where there were a few tiny chips, as well as to a couple of mild vertical tears at the top. One of the tears extended into the upper text. The poster has a slight bit of edge wear that is unaddressed, but this does not affect the presentation of this very rare piece. Very Fine on Linen.
