Starve the Squander Bug, Buy War Bonds

Washington, DC: Government Printing Office, 1943. Vintage World War II propaganda poster.

The Squander Bug character was created by British illustrator Phillip Boydell as a way to discourage wasteful spending. The character would be re-designed and re-purposed by a pre-Dr. Seuss Theodore Geisel to encourage the purchase of war bonds in the United States.

46. x 11.5 inches. Very Good. Minor chipping, bruising, and edgewear, with light toning, and tape residue on the verso.
