2018 Second World War Poster Calendar
At the beginning of the Second World War, early posters produced in Britain by the Ministry of Information attempted to bolster morale and prepare the public for the oncoming struggle. Later posters publicised campaigns intended to sustain the home front by encouraging people to grow their own food and repair their clothes. The campaigns drew upon some of Britain’s most talented artists, designers, cartoonists, and advertisers, including James Gardner, Abram Games, Jonathan Foss, and the Lewitt-Him partnership. Incorporating humour, memorable slogans, and modern design aesthetics, they created imaginative publicity that maintained morale.
The images in this calendar are from a selection of Second World War Allied posters collected primarily during the war. Founded in 1917 as the Imperial War Museum, IWM (now the Imperial War Museums) immediately began collecting from battlefields, factories, and homes in an effort to record the civilian and military war experience.
