Title: Victory Starts Here!

Comments: This is one of the spectacular posters that won the National War Poster Competition that was held under the auspices of the Artists For Victory, Inc.--Council For Democracy--Museum of Modern Art. Artists from 43 states submitted 2,224 designs. The posters portrayed 8 themes selected from the President's first war message to Congress on 6 January 1942, as well as 20 slogans. A wonderful poster that emphasizes the daily contributions to the war effort of the working men and woman of America. Few of these remain.
