While some might call the imagery of this poster a little 'over the top' you could argue that it seemed to get the job done. Created to encourage US citizens to buy 'Liberty Bonds' in 1918 the message is a clear one. It's certainly one of the most striking propaganda posters I've come across- while only two colours were really used it's all that was really needed to create the illusion of New York falling. Estimated value from the auctioneers Leslie Hindman is $200-400.
