During World War I and World War II, the United States government ran extensive campaigns to persuade Americans to take up causes related to the war efforts. From gas and food saving drives to reminders about wartime communication, the government frequently used posters to get the message out to citizens. Many of these posters and their characters are now iconic, such as Rosie the Riveter and Uncle Sam with his pointing finger, saying “I Want You.” During World War I, posters were used extensively to bring isolationist Americans on board with the idea of war in Europe. Many popular posters were then repurposed for use during World War II.
Artists and illustrators, such as Norman Rockwell, contributed their efforts to these posters, many of which became works of art themselves. Today, posters that remain from this era are considered very collectible and are often sold at auction for high prices. Luckily for enthusiasts on a smaller budget, we’ve collected a selection of these American war posters into a gallery of frame-ready prints in our 2022 Vintage War Posters Calendar. Have a sneak peek:
