The developments in design and printing techniques that produced visually arresting commercial posters in the 1900s were pressed into service during the First World War, mainly to call volunteers to arms, but also to rally civilians to do their bit by buying war bonds, joining the Women’s Land Army or giving to war charities. This survey of British wartime posters reproduces over 200 designs and discusses the themes that emerged over the course of the war.
