There is no other American President that is so well known as a symbol of vitality and youth than John F. Kennedy. With the slogan, "A Time For Greatness", this image of JFK was used on a number of advertising materials for his Democratic primary campaign for the presidency in 1960. His fellow Democratic competitors were Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey, Stuart Symington, and Adlai Stevenson.

Major questions by the Democratic Party surrounding JFK's viability as a Catholic candidate were raised during the campaign, so an information brochure was created to promote Kennedy and his accomplishments. The brochure highlights his accomplishments as a World War II hero, his performance in national polls, his relationships with the agriculture industry, and his strong stance on defense. In general, the literature also highlights what would become the vision of the "Great Society" continued by LBJ during his presidency.

  • 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.
