Additional Information: Blot it Out with Liberty Bonds - large WW1 format. This is the first poster to call the Germans Huns. Bloody hand print identifies their cruelty. The image reflects a growing anti-German sentiment in the U.S, and was one of a number of posters equating the Hun with limitless bloodshed. St. John became well known as an artist for his later illustrations in pulp magazines, especially those with a fantasy and mystical theme. His original oils in that genre are quite sought after. This is the larger format of the poster. Note that original WW1 posters are printed on a cotton paper that is ivory in color. The poster paper was NOT bleached to make it white. Archivally mounted on linen, with some restoration.
