This WWII poster is unique in its use of a monochromatic color palette. An image of a female office worker tending to her typewriter equipment is placed in front of a more simplistic rendering of a sniper in battle. The message here is that ensuring office materials on the Home Front last as long as possible will help keep factories focused on producing other, more vital war equipment for the men overseas.

Jon Whitcomb (1906 - 1988) was an American illustrator who created many images during WWII for the American government. He served in the Navy and was hired to depict active battle scenes in addition to his military service.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
