A little out of my line, but found the power of this 28" x 20" propaganda poster waaay too compelling to resist. With the help of Facebook, a kind lady translated it for me: "...on the far island: Hawaii; on paw: invading Chinese; bat: military power; header: heartless American ghosts(bastards) that invaded China".
The poster was found by the seller folded up in an old travel trunk in an Old Town area of Washington DC estate. One can imagine it was brought back by a government official about 70 years ago - who was drawn to the over the top graphics as I was. Naked women in chains! Burning cities, giant American ape with skulls for a belt... I will get this linen backed before framing. In my mind this was too important a find to let slip by.
