WWI CLASSIC FRENCH ARMY SURPLUS POSTER FUNNY GRAPHICS!!
Price: $870.00
. The posters in my gallery range from classic Art Nouveau and Art Deco masterpieces to strange and weird (some might say downright odd) posters like this one - and I have to admit that each one brings me pleasure of a different sort. The Art Nouveau and Deco babies are unquestionably beautiful and crafted with a skill that can not be compared, while posters like this are in a different category all together: this great big, honking French vintage poster is, I think, from just after World War One (I''m using the graphic style, the typographic style, the age of the paper and the quality of the paper as clues), and it is advertising American army surplus as a great value for French back-to- school. I think the concept is hysterical - imagine all these little French kids going to school with army surplus backpacks.... the visual makes me giggle because I think of French kids as way too prim and proper to be carrying that kind of schoolbag. Meanwhile the drill sargeant in the top left corner is literally ordering you to pick up your supplies THIS MINUTE!!
