The “The Sky’s the limit! Keep buying war bonds” propaganda poster was used during World War 2 to encourage those at home to keep buying war bonds to help fund the war effort.
Despite the victory over Nazi Germany, U.S. soldiers were still engaged in heavy fighting against the Japanese. A lot of men and resources had been lost in the fight against the Germans and finances were needed to continue the battle in Asia.
The poster bears the mark of the 6th war loan seal on the top left hand corner, this includes an image of a bomb dropping on a Japanese flag. Two men and woman are working on the engine of fighter plane in an hanger. Their expression is one of focus, it is clear from the posters everyday setting and the look on the protagonists face that the poster is trying to depict the message that there is still work to be done.
The poster was designed by Courtney Allen and published in 1944 by the U.S. Treasury department. Similar poster which encouraged the purchase of the 6th war loan bonds include the Next! 6th war loan poster.
