Pour la liberté du monde

This is a 1917 ad urging the French public to buy war bonds, featuring the Statue of Liberty, a French gift to the US. It’s roughly contemporaneous with the famous Uncle Sam “I want you” enlistment ad in the US. There’s a long discussion that could be had about the quality of art used in service to the horrifying bloodbath that was World War I, but I’m not the right person to lead it.
