Reproduction of a German WWII propaganda poster, 23 x 32", folded horizontally, numerous tape repairs on reverse, "Luftwaffe", on the bottom edge: "Herausgeber:NADP./ofset.druck/033.propag.luftwaffe" On the reverse is a 1.4" diameter rubber stamp with (our interpretation of the letters): Luftwaffen kommando/ 3" with a German eagle at center. Lithograph. Striking in appearance. [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.]
