The “Till we meet again – Buy war bonds” poster was used in the U.S.A during World War 2 to encourage those at home to buy war bonds. War bonds were sold to those at home to help fund the war effort.
During World War 2 it is estimated that the U.S. government spent over $296 billion on their part in the war. This money went towards buying food, weapons and shipping over 16.1 million personnel around the world to take part in the fighting.
War bond posters both encouraged the purchase of the bonds to fund the war effort and made those who were at home feel part of the war. This posters is a part of series of war bonds posters from the time.
The poster was designed by Joseph Hirsch who was a well known American painter from the period. He was part of a group of prestigious U.S. artists at the time who took part in designing propaganda posters to help in the war effort.
