Canada (16 of 32 Posters)
Many Canadian posters from World War I have a theme of conserving food for the war effort. There is also imagery of women and children working in place of the men, bond effort for the war and the remembrence theme of the field of poppies made famous by “Flander’s Field“, written by a young Canadian doctor and soldier, Lt. Col. John McCrae.
We have used the book, “World War I Posters” by Gary A. Borkan to create a catalog identification system for all of the posters in the Hunter Collection. Each poster is identified by the page number in the book, and a letter (A, B or C) for the position from left to right on a given page in the book. Poster IDs with letters G or greater are not found in the Borkan book.
