Story of this Masterpiece

This propaganda-poster is one of only a few showing a female character as the main protagonist. The motif shows a white-teethed-beauty ambitiously raising her hand as to sign up voluntarily for duty. The advertising slogan “The style for you is Air Force Blue” has been designed to appeal to the fashion awareness of young women in the southwest-pacific region.

Released in 1941 this artwork was part of a campaign to get women to join New Zealand’s Women’s Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF). The non-combatants have been employed for all types of supportive jobs like cooking, driving, assisting, typing or of medical nature.

This exciting vintage-poster is a one-of-a-kind trip into the detailed illustrations of the mid-century. Grab this poster to decorate your walls and celebrate the peaceful times we’re in and to remind yourself of the fact that unusual times require unusual measures.
