Greeting card: Were you there then?
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.
