Images of Propaganda

I collect posters and advertisements of propaganda, because I find them fascinating and informative.  The old ones tell so much about the world view of the times.  Some of them have wonderfully sledgehammer slogans; did people actually believe them? I guess they did, although that would indicate that many folks were ignorant, naive.  Certainly they were much less educated, and their world knowledge and experience were limited.

This one is  French, from 1915.  I love the spider's evil face and the eagle's blank look, as it stares into the stormy sky.
One of my favourites!
