This is a rare original Abram Games war, military or propaganda poster entitled "Talk Kills" It features a very graphic soldier in distress with barbed barb wire, in red, marroon and orange tones, with a text of "Talk KIlls". The clear and graphic message is that unguarded talk will offer information to the enemy. It features an amazing example of 1940's forties era world war two graphics and the work of Abram Games. This is the "loose lips sink ships" era, an ever important wartime message.

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 entire collection here. The poster is archivally linen backed and ready for framing. We only have this one. Also see another version of this poster with a different image in green tones on our site here.
