  1. Great collection of posters! The condom one is probably quite new as it mentions "AIDS" in it, which wasn't used as a term until the 80s.

  2. Some might be real, but, the one that says "I take one everywhere I take my penis" is fake...Cool Whip wasn't marketed until 1966...

  5. Yeah, because trying to help people avoid getting syphilis and gonorrhea is hilarious propaganda. But it's ok because it's 'old'; taking responsibility for your life is so old fashioned.

  6. It's not exactly fake. It is a real poster designed by Art Chantry in 90's. I have one. Hilarious that is in a collection of vintage war posters!

  9. Actually the thirteenth poster is not from the 40s rather from the late 90s, 1997 to be more precise, and the designer behind that masterpiece is no other than Art Chantry: “Chantry was approached by the Cole and Weber ad agency to apply his Tool style to a poster promoting condom use in 1997. Ultimately distributed by the Washington State Department of Health and Social Services, the Penis Cop poster, as it is commonly known, won a bronze Lion at the Cannes festival for international advertising.”

  10. Actually the thirteenth poster is not from the 40s rather from the early 90s, 1993 to be more precise, and the designer behind that masterpiece is no other than Art Chantry: “Art Chantry designed this AIDS awareness poster as a pro bono project, which was commissioned by the Washington State Department of Health and Social Services, U.S. Aimed at gay men, the poster employs what Chantry describes as ‘satirical and pompous authoritative information to create an otherwise false sense of community.’ Chantry's design work has become synonymous with the use of vernacular pictorial references that are drawn from technical and instruction manuals and cheap illustrations from the 1950s and 1960s. The poster depicts the image of a policeman from a public information poster and reworks the message into a humorous instruction on the use of condoms to prevent the spread of sexual disease. The title line, ‘I take one everywhere I take my penis,’ implies a direct voice of authority, and is specifically designed to relay a very serious message in an amusing and ironic manner. This use of visual and textual language is targeted to a specific audience, in particular young people who may feel disaffected by official government warnings on the subject. The poster was hung in public restrooms, saunas, and corporate offices—in Chantry's words, ‘those locations where sexual activity might take place.’”
