Your Hands Hold the Future of Defense Production. They Must Be Kept Safe [poster]
[Washington, DC]: National Committee for Conservation of Man-Power in Defense Industries, [1942?]. Roughly 15 by 20.25 inches. A poster issued by the US Department of Labor to encourage worker safety. The image depicts two hands, one holding a hammer and the other holding a factory surrounded by tankes, airplanes, artillery pieces, and ships. The artist is not identified. The date of publication is estimated as this poster was listed as available for free distribution in "Our Country's Call to Service," a pamphlet published in 1942 by the Federal Security Agency. An uncommon home front poster from the Second World War. No copies are listed in OCLC or the Library of Congress database. ISBN: 281AIB013476X.
A fair to good example, mounted on linen, with considerable restoration. The poster was folded twice (probably for mailing). There is paper infill in the margins and a couple of tears that extend into the image that have been recolored competently but not expertly. An acceptable copy of a scarce and striking poster.Book ID: 61049More details Price: $100.00
