This is a rare original Abram Games war, military or propaganda poster entitled "Blood Donors" It features a soldier with an outline of medical blood bottle, held in a large hand. It features an amazing example of 1940's forties era world war two graphics and the work of Abram Games. Poster text reads: "If he should fall, is your blood there to save him? The Army Blood Transfusion Service needs Blood Donors."

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.
