I love food posters. Thanks to Food Safety News for the heads up about the National Library of Medicine’s exhibit of marvelous food posters from World Wars I and II. Many of these can be seen online at the Smithsonian’s site. The exhibit was curated by Cory Bernat, who comments on it and also has a collection posted on the web (I’ve seen it and it’s wonderfully downloadable, but seems to have a bandwidth problem at the moment). Enjoy!
