Team Holstee fell in love with this vintage WWI poster by Frederick G. Cooper. And after giving it a slightly refreshed look, this original poster released by the U.S. Food Administration is now available as a letterpress print.
Well done, Holstee.
Isn’t it amazing that a century later, we’re still thinking along the same lines? I guess when the broad strokes are already well drawn, progress is all about the details. Great find, Tina!
I LOVE This poster. Thanks for sharing. I’d discovered another version recently but couldn’t find a version that was available for sale. I think it’s perfect for my kitchen :)
There’s a restaurant in NYC that uses these as their coasters, can’t put my finger on the name of it right now. I grabbed one a few years ago because I loved it.
Yes, Cait! My in-laws scooped up one those coasters and framed it. It’s hanging in their Cape Cod abode. Lovely!
My Mom has had an original copy of this poster hanging in our kitchen since I was a little kid. I have always loved its graphical and factual simplicity.
