Absence makes the war grow longer...
An Australian poster issued by the Department of War Organisation of Industry to discourage workers at home in Australia from taking unnecessary leave, investing in war loans and following austerity measures to ensure a swift end to the war. The design features text only with the title ' ABSENCE makes the WAR grow longer' printed in red top to bottom. Additionally positioned in the upper half printed in bright blue are the following subtitles: 'From the job'; 'From Austerity'; 'From investing in war loans'. The text is set against a pale green background within a ragged white border.
