Collection: World War I (WWI): 1914 - 1918

World War I posters were a form of propaganda used to rally support for the war effort. The style of WWI posters was more ornate and decorative, with illustrations and typography playing a prominent role. They had a more optimistic and romantic tone, meant to inspire patriotism, enlistment and donation on the home front. These posters, now considered an important part of cultural history, are colorful and eye-catching with playful and imaginative designs.
