I Am Telling You by James M. Flagg - Art Print
Poster realized in 1918 by James Montgomery Flagg (1877???1960). Flagg was an American artist and illustrator.

He created his most famous work in 1917, a poster to encourage recruitment in the United States Army during World War I.

Over four million copies of the poster were printed during World War I, and it was revived for World War II. This poster wasn't for soldier recruitment but rather, for an "army of savers." People who could save money and fund the war effort. June 28th was Offical War Savings Day.
