    Fred, you have outdone yourself!!! That was truly entertaing and informative. Thank you for your great efforts. I hope this thread grows .

    Yugoslavian Partisan, yours are a brilliant addition, a quite different genre and it expands my knowledge about poster art. They are bolder, brighter, more emotional. See Fred, your have motivated a good thing.

    When I taught at LSU , Louisiana state University, , for our foreign members I found, by count, 97 WW2 posters rolled up in a storage room. all original, but beginning to deteriorate. I was very tempted to "liberate" a few but my damned conscious got the best of me. They were a donation to the school. I did get them transferred to the Library where I was told they would be preserved and at least they appeared interested.

    Lots of reproductions out there which would be fine for me, but the originals should be safely kept. They are highly collectable and deserve to be..

    As a young child , 1945 or so, I can only vaguely remember the poster of "Uncle Sam" leaning out and saying I want you, or Uncle Sam wants you , or somebody or entity wants or needs you. A lasting memory.

    This poster became very popular among the internet users and it comes in a lot of variants. What most of the people don't know is that it was used in the UK during the Battle of Britain to raise morale threatened with air attacks.
    Here's the original one:
