"If You Want to Fight! / Join the Marines" Vintage WWI Poster by Howard Chandler Christy, 1915

This taunting and daring recruitment poster urges the public to join the Marines. The work features the artist's signature in the lithograph stone, as well as a stunning depiction of a woman dressed in a Marines uniform at center. Christy played with the idea of switched gender roles, as shown here with a woman pictured in a traditionally masculine role. This aimed to seduce men into joining the service.

"First in the Fight- Always Faithful- Be a U.S. Marine!" Vintage WWI Poster by James Montgomery Flagg, 1918

This 1918 Marines recruitment poster was designed by the famed poster artist, James Montgomery Flagg. Equally persuasive as his iconic "I want YOU" poster, Flagg's exhortation to America's youth in this WWI poster is poised on the edge of action: pistol raised, about to aim; foot forward, fatigues rumpled as if in the first motions toward a run. The artfully illustrated Marine pops in contrast from the bold, simplified, flag depicted in the background.

$3,250.00
