This is a rare and exquisite American government sponsored advertising poster for the U.S. Marine Corps. It was created by James Montgomery Flagg in 1918 to contribute to the World War I war effort. It features a simple but stunningly effective design: a Marine stands in the center of the poster with one hand clenched, the other holding up a handgun, framed by a large and electrifyingly vivid American flag that creates a boldly patriotic background. Below the flag, at the bottom of the poster, it says in blue block typography, "First in the Fight - Always Faithful - Be a U.S. Marine!" Montgomery Flagg's use of vibrant colors, combined with a rigorously efficient design, creates a timeless image that still looks modern today.
