The Big Move

Hello All,

For the past two years I have been posting on my site on blogspot. I will be moving my posts here, (noting what dates they were originally posted on).

WPA September back to books I included this lovely WPA poster in honor of school starting back up again next week.  I love the simplicity of the art work in the poster, and how high the women’s skirt goes as she drags the boy from the book shelf. It adds a sense of urgency.  It is a bit odd that she is dragging him away from the book shelf while the poster says “back to books” but maybe those are bad books or she is grading him away from books and “back to work.”  “Back to the mines with you Jimmy!”
