This is a large and rare original small Abram Games war, military or propaganda poster entitled "Curiosity, Ignorance, Bravado" It features a coffin and ammunition, and is an amazing example of 1940's forties era world war two graphics and the work of Abram Games. Poster text reads: "Accidents occur daily from each of these causes. Treat ammunition with respect and save it to kill the enemy" The clear and graphic message is to work with ammunition with care and avoid accidents.
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.
