WWII - POSTER, c1940. Careless Talk Costs Lives. British poster by Fougasse, c1940

EDITORS COMMENTS
This black and white lithograph from the 1940s transports us back to the height of World War II in England. The poster, created by renowned British cartoonist Fougasse, delivers a powerful message that resonated with both soldiers and civilians alike during this tumultuous time. The image depicts a crowded train compartment filled with passengers engrossed in conversation while an elegant bird perched on a branch silently observes them. The text boldly proclaims "Careless Talk Costs Lives, " serving as a stark reminder of the importance of discretion and secrecy during wartime. Fougasse's clever illustration captures the essence of propaganda art at its finest - simple yet impactful. By using anthropomorphized animals and relatable human characters, he effectively conveys the dire consequences that could arise from loose lips. This print serves as a historical artifact, reminding us of the sacrifices made by countless individuals who fought for freedom during WWII. It encapsulates not only the spirit of solidarity among Allied forces but also highlights Britain's determination to maintain national security amidst uncertainty. As we gaze upon this iconic piece, let it serve as a timeless reminder that even seemingly innocent conversations can have far-reaching implications in times of war. Let us honor those who came before us by cherishing their legacy and always being mindful of our words. "
