This WWI era poster was issued by the American Library Association’s War Service Committee in support of their campaign to provide books for American soldiers fighting on the faraway battlefields of Europe. Books provided an escape from the drudgery of military camp life and the hardships of front line trenches. The poster’s title Knowledge Wins reflects a belief that books for soldiers were an essential part of the overall war effort and would help to achieve the ultimate goal of victory. This lower margin indicates “Designed And Printed By Thomsen-Ellis Company :: Baltimore : New York”.
This vintage original poster has bold color and only light evidence of handling with beautiful display quality. Overall condition is very good.
