Grieving parents have just learned the terrible fate of their son due to "Careless Talk". They look out to the viewer, as a haunting reminder to be careful when talking about the war or pertinent information regarding war related material from the factories. This poster entitled, Americans Suffer When Careless Talk Kills, was created by Harry Anderson in 1943.

During the Second World War, there was a constant concern in the United States about inappropriate information being overheard by enemy agents both domestically and abroad.

Harry Anderson (1906-1996) entered the world of illustration in the early 1930's doing work for local New York magazines. By 1937 he was involved in designing national advertising campaigns as well as paintings for all the major popular magazines of the time. Anderson is best remembered for his series of Christian paintings commissioned by the Latter Day Saints movement. Nearly 300 paintings saw heavy reproduction as church decorations and advertising material. In 1994, he was inducted into the Society of Illustrators' Hall of Fame.

This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition.

  • 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.
