Your Country Needs You: British War Posters

Last updated: 9 September 2013

James Taylor, Brian Webb, Susannah Walker, Catherine Flood and David Bownes

7 September 2013, 10.30am - 4.00pm

In celebration of British war posters from the English Civil Wars to the present day, listen to five experts discuss the changing ways posters have been used both to encourage support for the Army and to register dissent.

Speakers will examine the range of artists and designers, such as John Hassall, Abram Games and Terence Cuneo, who have produced some of the 20th century’s most memorable images.

This all-day event will also feature the launch of 'Your Country Needs You: A Secret History of the Propaganda Poster' by James Taylor, and a display of rarely seen Second World War posters designed and personally signed by Abram Games.
