Imperial War Museum Victory Harvest Notebook

    By

    Introducing a new range of notebooks with iconic images from the archives of the Imperial War Museum. These notebooks are exquisitely finished and cloth bound with woodfree paper, large back pocket and elastic closure. These striking images were originally illustrated for Second World War posters. British wartime posters were distinctive in their incorporation of propaganda which incorporated modern design aesthetics in support of a variety of vital wartime initiatives. The posters reveal the spirit of defiance and calm purpose pervading British society. The illustrations are indicative of the typical graphic style of the wartime period. Shortages in agricultural labour prompted the 'Lend a Hand onthe Land' initiative in 1943 which encouraged families to take inexpensive 'working holidays' assisting with summer harvests. The scheme sought in spirit to reflect established traditions such as the annual migration of Londoners for the Kent hop-pick.
