"That liberty shall not perish from the earth...": WW1 Liberty Bonds Poster

The summer rolls on. Here in Salt Lake City, July 2022, was the hottest month ever recorded. The string of 100-degree days was astonishing (and depressing), but there are always family, friends, and books. How can you go wrong with all that?
      As part of Dark City Underground’s summer slowdown, enjoy this World War 1 Liberty Bonds poster (1918), by Joseph Pennell (1857 - 1926). A crazy, apocalyptic and mesmerizing image of the Statute of Liberty.
      Until next time, stay cool.
