1918. A Book Project of illustrated Posters.
A historical Documentation of fascinating Posters around the political, socially and also propaganda activities in 1918.
I am Tim, a media designer and artist. The combination of image and text has always been my passion. Especially early movie posters I always found fascinating. At some point I accidentally discovered various image archives on the Internet and discovered a huge number of film and propaganda posters. These were mostly filed as a raw scan document. Most posters are free available and legally not copyrighted, they are classified as a “public domain” and therefore usable for everyone.
From thousands of posters I have now selected 100 pieces that use very special illustrations, colors or typography. They are all very striking and fascinating. A large part comes from the USA, here are also artworks with it. Also some European posters are included. Thematically there is a great variety of posters, recruitment, war bonds, support of the Red Cross or the war women. But also nutrition and careful use of resources played a role. The book “1918” contains 100 posters from the period 1917-1918. Not exactly every date could be defined, the majority is from 1918. 100 years, 100 posters, 100 drawings. Make 100! Make History! We also offer framed Artprints in two sizes as Reward. They are manufactured and printed in the US. Shipping is only to the US, unfortunately it’s too expensive to Europe.
