This is an original Abram Games propaganda poster addressing humanitarian issues, for the United Nations’ Freedom From Hunger campaign. It is a wonderful post World War 2 Public Information Poster, first published in 1960 by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
The design is indicative of Games' high modernist style, as in, sparse, direct, and clean. Games is famous for his 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, uncommon.
