This A5, spiral-bound paper back journal with 128 unlined pages lies flat at any page to help you easily sketch out your plans, jot down those special phone numbers and addresses or paste in a photo of your dream house. The handy journal features a recruitment poster image.
Recruitment posters, many featuring the work of Australia’s best-known artists and designers, became a cornerstone of the government’s efforts to convince young men to join up. Most relied on a strong single image, bold colours and simple text designed to play on a variety of emotions: national pride, guilt, shame, the need to belong, fear of what the enemy might do if left unchecked.
