‘The world must be made safe for democracy. Its peace must be planted upon the tested foundations of political liberty. We have no selfish ends to serve. We desire no conquest, no dominion. We seek no indemnities for ourselves, no material compensation for the sacrifices we shall freely make.’
Woodrow Wilson, on the State of War with Germany during an Address to Congress. April 2, 1917.

A few years’ ago, while I was researching for The Little Book of Wiltshire , I came across Leonard Raven-Hill (1867-1942), Punch cartoonist and illustrator of Kipling’s Stalky & Co who lived in Bromham near Devizes (1896-1912). He also designed First World War propaganda posters. He came to my mind again at the opening of a new exhibition in Devizes.

‘The Winds and Words of War’, an exhibition of First World War propaganda posters from the San Antonio Public Library Collection, Texas, is on a two-year European tour. Fresh from its four-month stopover at the Médiathèque Jean Falala Library, Reims, France, it is now at the Wiltshire Museum, Devizes, until 22 April 2018. This is the only UK venue so it’s quite a coup for the museum, and for the county.

An exhibit showcasing 40 vintage World War I (1914-1918) posters returns to the Central Library Gallery, 600 Soledad 78205, following a five-year museum and library tour.  The exhibit will run from October 5 through November 24 during regular library hours. Additionally, an opening reception will take place on Tuesday, October 8 from 6:00 – 8:00pm in the gallery and will include a brief presentation by the curator, Allison Hays Lane, director of the OLANA Group, LLC. The reception is open to the public.

Commissioned by the U.S. Committee on Public Information to build patriotism, raise funds for war bonds, encourage enlistment, and increase volunteerism, more than 300 of America’s most famous illustrators, cartoonists, designers and fine artists donated their services to create more than 700 posters. 450 of these works are part of the library’s permanent collection, bequeathed to the San Antonio Public Library in 1940 by Harry Hertzberg, former Texas state senator and avid memorabilia collector.

The exhibit is co-sponsored by the San Antonio Public Library Foundation, the Stumberg Foundation, The Tobin Endowment, the City of San Antonio Veterans Affairs Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts. These items were originally exhibited by the Library in 2008.
