World War 2 Poster 1942  – Your Talk May Kill Your Comrades

Description

When addressing civilian audiences, the famed ‘Careless Talk Costs Lives’ poster campaign used humour. However, Abram Games is more open in this poster in confronting soldiers with the potential penalties of disclosing military secrets. At the centre of this arresting image was a self-portrait as a soldier. His words become a red-hot blade that slashes through three warriors’ bodies cleanly.
