Careless talk, including spreading rumors, could be helpful to the enemy and compromise national security and the safety of Armed Forces members. The theme of Loose Lips Sink Ships was a standard message in World War II vintage posters. Antique posters are 'pictures of persuasion,' as we might call them, and offer a wealth of art, history, design, and popular culture for us to understand. The poster is a familiar part of our world, and we intuitively understand its role as propaganda, promotion, announcement, or advertisement." Note: World War II posters were folded as they were prepared to be mailed. The restored fold marks are not considered a defect. The bottom right corner was repaired. Clean and bright. Today this original poster is very scarce and difficult to locate. This is an Original Lithograph Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is professionally acid-free conservation mounted, linen-backed, and in excellent condition. (Please note that standard excellent condition allows for very minor handling wear at edges).
