Reproductions of four German propaganda posters c1939-42, each about 23 x 32". A) "help siegen as airmail helper" (probably trying to recruit women for the post office). B) "36 Division of the SS" C) (promo for a book about Capt Metzler), D) Die Wehrmacht" [UPDATE: Under high magnification, we have discovered these posters have a stochastic (randomized) CMYK ink dot pattern that was not invented until the nineteen-seventies and was not widely used until the advent of high-quality inkjet printers some years later. The original WWII-era posters were probably printed as serigraphs with smooth color gradations and no half-toning. Someone more recently has scanned them at high resolution and reproduced them using modern, large-format inkjet equipment. The dead giveaway is that even the “faded” margins of the paper (where there should not be any ink) have a stochastic CMYK dot pattern that recreates the appearance of worn, faded paper. Nevertheless, these reproductions still have an artistic, educational, and historical value in representing the type of propaganda widely used during WWII.]
