The Kitchener Poster
by Funfly Design
The Kitchener Poster is a book about events that surrounded the famous World War One posters with the words 'Your Country Needs You' and 'Kitchener Wants You'. These images and words have remained with us as an icon of the First World War.
The book is not just about the poster but offers glimpses of the Edwardian era -times so different than today.
