About the publication

Jointly curated by Patricia Phagan (Vassar) and Peter van Alfen (ANS), and timed to coincide with the centennial of US involvement in World War I, this exhibition explores for the first time on American soil the intertwined roles of posters and medals in shaping public opinion of the war and in steering Americans into it. This companion volume includes six chapters focusing on Great War art and propaganda by experts in medallic and graphic arts of the early 20th century, followed by a complete, full-color catalog of the 130 medals and posters featured in the exhibition.
