Notes: A survey of the propaganda and motivational posters designed and published by the General Cable Corporation during the Second World War. The posters are documented with 33 high quality full-page reproductions printed with spot colors (rather than four-color CMYK separations). On the page facing each poster is a brief bibliographical details about print runs, distribution, and the reason for the poster. This is one of the best books of WWII posters from the period. Many of the posters depicted had print runs in the hundreds of copies and are rarely seen.
The remainder of the book offers examples of General Cable's military products produced during the war, illustrated with sepia halftone photographs.
About 120 pages; color frontispiece. 9 by 12 inches.
Each copy is numbered on a tipped in limitation sticker at the back. The highest number seen by your cataloguer is ca. 2500.
Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing). Some wear to board edges, as usual, thus very good in illustrated paper-covered boards with a cloth spine.
Publication: New York: General Cable Corporation, 1945.
