During both world wars, our nation used posters to recruit, raise funds and exhort civilians to conserve. A collection of vintage war propaganda posters, shown together for the first time at the Maltz Museum, World War Posters features exquisitely designed examples of wartime and period art. Often created by famous illustrators like Howard Chandler Christy and James Montgomery Flagg, these posters are prized for their rarity, use of color and creative use of imagery.
