The Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens will be having an exhibition of old World War I Posters starting this August:
From the Huntington Website:
In commemoration of the start of World War I in the summer of 1914, this centennial exhibition in the Library’s West Hall illustrates how a global war was waged not just by soldiers on battlefields and politicians in offices, but by civilian populations of men, women, and children on the home fronts of combatant nations including Canada, England, France, and the United States. Drawn entirely from The Huntington’s collections, “Your Country Calls!” features approximately 50 stirring posters created to shape and influence national identity, justify involvement, build unity across international borders, and mobilize citizens into action for a collective effort to win the war.
The Exhibition starts August 2, 2014 and runs through November 3, 2014.
