If You Talk Too Much, This Man May Die is a 1942 U.S.A World War II propaganda poster by Valentino Sarra. Like many posters dealing with the theme of "Loose Lips Sink Ships", Sarra's composition focuses on the sailor peering out from window of a Navy vessel. The close portrait of the sailor makes a personal appeal to the viewer. The composition allows the viewer to imagine their loved one as the helpless sailor at sea, subject to the dangers of leaked information. The theme of "Loose Lips" was a major concern during the war and resulted in many iterations of the warning in wartime poster art of this era from the United States.

  • 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.
