Brochure is a single sheet of thin card stock, folded twice vertically and once horizontally along the bottom to create a “pocket” and measures 8½” x 5½” folded; 10 (of 10) sample posters + one duplicate each measuring 6¼” x 5”. Brochure is very good with light wear and dust soiling, sample posters generally near fine or better. A marketing piece for a series of little known World War II posters extolling the virtues of labor and showing up for work on time, all the time. They were created by the National Industrial Information Committee (NIIC). NIIC was created in 1934 as a response to New Deal programs and organized labor with a goal of marketing capitalist ideals. Four of the posters feature the art of Willard Golovin who ran a successful advertising agency and directed an art gallery in New York. Two of the posters depict Hitler--one as the Pied Piper, the other as a radio announcer. Others include images of MacArthur, Churchill and Chiang Kai-shek OCLC shows no holdings of this brochure or its miniature posters and it reflects no holdings of the larger versions. An internet search shows that one institution has a few of the miniatures, another with several full size and Duke holds Golovin's papers with a mention of World War II posters related to absenteeism.
