Date: c. 1945 Size: 19.75 x 30 inches Notes: Poster Artist: Anonymous About The Poster: During WWII, not only did posters continue to play their important role as vectors of motivation and patriotic fervour. They also appealled "to darker emotions such as anger at the cost of war - both human and financial. The appeal of posters also lies in the use of familiar images and expressions. Graphic artists combined their skill with advertising copywriters to sway public opinion and unite people in support of the war effort. The posters’ effectiveness arises from complex designs of words and symbols to communicate, invite action and build consensus." (Source : Australian National Wartime Museum, Patriotism, Persuasion, Prpaganda, American War Posters). This poster, titled "Plus de 1 000 000 de tonnes de l'axe coulées dans la mer du Nord et dans la manche" maps out all of the ships lost during the war and their location. It is a blunt visualization of the cost of war, intended to rally people's solidarity and help.
