Poster 1 – Your Scrap brought it down, Keep Scrapping 1942
This is an original poster issued by the United States War Production Board during World War II to inspire Americans to recycle more scrap materials to be used in the production of armaments in support of the war against Germany, Italy, and Japan. Text at lower right reads: “Keep Scrapping / Rubber • Metal • Rags / Give to a Collector, Salvage Dept or Sell to a Dealer.” It features artwork by Zudor, and his signature is reproduced in the image at the upper right. This poster was issued in two versions with art by different artists.
Poster 2 – Americans will always fight for liberty 1778 1943
This Bernard Perlin 1943 World War II poster, 1778 – 1943, is Office of War Information poster No. 26. War posters were often intended to foster patriotism and confidence. Here, the appeal is a time in our history when the challenges and our response to them could not have been greater.
Desperate, with torn clothing and bloody bandaged feet, the Continental soldiers inspire the well-clothed, helmeted U.S. soldiers in the war at hand. The poster lacks some of the raw, emotional content of many war posters. Instead, it aims to recruit, encourage, and motivate.
