This is a better link, directly to the index page.

Little known fact: one of the artists involved in doing some of those propaganda illustrations such as this one and this one was Finland-born Touko Laaksonen- who would later be known as Tom of Finland.

Betcha never heard that before!

Some of those posters really give me the creeps . . . like this one and this one.

The one that gives me the creeps is the one that tells me that Darth Vader is watching me. ::shiver::

These are a far sight better than your typical motivational posters! I just woke up, and already I feel guilty!

Also, I have the deeply troubling desire to print out the Riding with Hitler one and make it a bumper sticker. It touches my soul on so many different levels.

A bill has been proposed to begin selling war bonds again for the first time since World War II, according to a headline I just read on CNN's onscreen ticker.
