    Here is the most iconic piece of WW1 art, the poem In Flander's Fields (left), with a response written to it that was published 98 years ago this month, We Shall Keep The Faith (Right).

    It is graven on a most fragile set of papers, something like thick rice paper, and bleeds through it. I do not believe it to be in an original frame, as it is not sized right. The frame itself is backed with a grass-like plant woven together, which I will have to spray to preserve as it is disintegrating.

    The images are theme after the imagery of the poem and WW1.

    Over all, a very nice piece likely made just after the war ended. It says that the author of In Flanders Fields was killed in action, but I've read elsewhere that he died of disease.

    There is a maker's mark of some kind on the Bible in there, but it is difficult to read and appears to say, "by permission of Lee Heedich, Owner of International Rights"

      Nice WW1 memorabilia. It would be great in a WW1 Museum! There is a lot of WW1 sheet music about Flander's Field and many decorated with scores of POPPIES. It seemed they grew wild there when soldiers fell. I think I have on I can put on--One is illustrated by Norman Rockwell "Over Yonder Where The Poppies Grow"
