Description This straightforward advertisement for Liberty Bonds published by the Edwards & Deutsch Lithograph Company persuades citizens to participate in the program by offering an incentive—buying a Liberty Bond comes with a button to communicate your patriotism to others. Other posters for Liberty Bonds in the collection reference the buttons featuring the Statue of Liberty. No matter the distance of the audience, the large text and patriotic colors clearly communicate the message; and if successful, the buttons function as another form of visual communication to publicize the program.
