This is an uncommon, rare original Abram Games war, military or propaganda poster entitled "Postmark Betrayed this H.Q" It features a burning red postmark for the town of Tanbridge, England, and is an amazing example of 1940's forties era world war two graphics and the work of Abram Games. Poster text reads: "A Postmark Betrayed this H.Q.: Use the Army Post Office." The clear and graphic message is to be very careful with wartime mail.

The design is indicative of Games' high modernist style, as in, sparse, direct, art deco and clean. During the war Games used photography, in photomontage to create surrealistic, modern poster design. We are very happy to offer a rare collection of his original poster work, which has been on our personal collection for years. See the entire collection here. The poster is archivally linen backed and ready for framing. We only have this one, and it is a very uncommon piece, rarely found.
