    Description

    World War II Propaganda by Norman Rockwell (U.S. Government Printing Office, 1943). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. OWI Poster No. 46 (20" X 28") "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 and fold wear, minor creases, small corner chips, extra horizontal folds, pinholes, fold separations, faint surface scuffs, toning, or unobtrusive stains. There is also a small amount of graphite writing in the border.
