Cool collection of British WWII era propaganda posters (apologies if this has been posted before, search didn't find it). Includes recruitment posters & general morale building posters, among other categories, including some that the U.S. may wish to license for repurpose in the future.

Thanks for producing such a great blog in 2004.

Hi Ed, and thank you kindly for your post. How / where do I sign up ASAP for whatever it is you're promoting?

Looking forward to doing business with you!

Man, that's a shame. I thought it was kind of a cool post, and that fucker had to ruin it. I hope anyone who does business with Ed Keay Smith can turn a blind eye to his repeated convictions for fraud & spousal abuse.

In-country US posters dealing with the war effort and, beginning with image 98, venereal disease. Buy war bonds and use prophylaxis!

Stefan Landsberger's Chinese Propaganda Poster Pages, The Propaganda Remix Project, and Propaganda in the Internet Age were posted here before, I think. Maybe. Anyway, there they are again (?).

All the online remixing of American war propaganda posters over the last couple of years or so has really made me tired of this whole concept, even though I find many of these visually appealing.

Great link, I just wish I wasn't so soured on them. Damn you, Something Awful!

Great links everyone. I teach history and websites like these are gold for me, instant Powerpoints that the students love and are great for class discussion. I especially like the ones that show the links between sex and war. Thanks.

jonson, you trendsetter, you - the first post to attract your own spammer!
Great links, thanks.

seanyboy: If you'd like a better version, you can buy reprints. (And yes, I like that one too.)

Also, the National Archives (US) had a WWII poster exhibit that you can view online.

I'll bet a reprint of this (LarryC's "war" link) would sell pretty well.

Great post!
