Persuasion - US propaganda posters from WWII opens this Thursday 19 December at Australian National Maritime Museum.

American propaganda posters of the First World War used graphic imagery to illicit raging hatred of the enemy.
 
American propaganda posters from the Second World War are subtler, and emphasise the importance of saving time, money and resources. 
The posters in Persuasion run the gamut of propaganda from the prophetic drowning hand of 'Someone talked', to the patriotic 'Bonds buy ships' and innocent 'Become a nurse' to evoke America at war on the battlefront and at home.
