Nike, the Greek goddess of victory, wields a sword in one hand and a laurel frond in the other in this beautifully elegant WWI poster. The powerful imagery is meant to convey the triumphant winning of the war, which can only happen if the viewer buys war savings stamps. We are told that buying these stamps will help "save for your country, save for yourself".

America's involvement in WWI was largely unanticipated, and quite expensive. The U.S. Government began soliciting bonds that everyday Americans could deposit to the cause, to be paid back by the government when the war ended with interest applied. This influx of cash flow allowed the US to buy tanks, feed soldiers, and essentially finance the path to victory.

William Haskell Coffin (1878-1941) was an American painter and illustrator most well-known for his work in literary magazines such as Harper's and The Saturday Evening Post. Coffin was one of the most highly paid illustrators of his time, and his style pulled from the Pre-Raphaelite movement.

  • 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.
