Historical Note

Posters were an established means of communication well before World War I, and although traditional media were also used, the unrivalled ability of posters to communicate quickly and memorably allowed governments and organizations to persuade and inform the public on matters of public policy and mobilize the home front. Posters were used for recruiting, fund-raising, to bolster support, to encourage industrial output, and to support a variety of relief efforts. Patriotism and a sense of duty were captured in visual metaphor by a variety of popular graphic artists.

In the United States, poster campaigns were especially well supported, popular, and extensive during the first World War. Many prominent American illustrators donated their services to the federal government under the auspices of the Division of Pictorial Publicity, through the leadership of Charles Dana Gibson. Illustrators used a wide range of styles, from iconic images and historical art references to glamour girls and cartoons.
