Canvas print: Food needs transport

Australian War Memorial SHOP:101020319

During the First and Second World Wars, posters were an ideal means of communicating with the general public. They were informative, influential, and often provocative. Designed to be eye-catching, posters could be mass-produced and distributed quickly in large numbers. The Australian War Memorial holds a large collection of wartime posters from government-issued campaign posters, to recruitment and propaganda posters.

Food needs transport is a high-quality reproduction of an original poster, held in the Memorial’s national collection (ARTV01551). This British Second World War poster was created by Polish artists Jan LeWitt and George Him. This poster was part of a wide campaign to minimise waste, linking home front frugalness with front line military activities.

 

Enliven your home or office with this striking canvas print.
