This vintage original WWII poster was created by artist Bernard Perlin and issued by the Office of War Information as OWI Poster No. 15 in 1942.   Perlin’s visceral image of a muscular US Navy sailor raising his clinched first over the exploding ship adds urgency to the poster’s stark and simple title Avenge December 7.  This poster was issued shortly after the United States entered WWII while the attack on Pearl Harbor was still fresh on millions of American minds.  This poster is unique in that it simply calls for revenge without explicitly promoting the sale of bonds or otherwise serving a specific wartime goal such as educating and motivating workers or the public.      

This lightly used full one sheet size vintage original WWII poster is fully complete and well intact.  The poster shows modest handling wear, slight toning from age and a single pinhole on each corner.  There is small staple hole size puncture in the image area near the upper right hand corner.  Overall condition is very good.
