Back in 2011 when austerity measures were sweeping through the public library systems of the Western world as a result of failed economic policies, Phil Bradley came up with an idea.
“What if the #savelibraries campaign had taken place between 1914-18?”
Then, the government would pump out posters intended to stir up support for whatever the issue at hand was.
Pushing out the scope to include the posters of WWII years Phil Bradley went to work enlisting the posters of yesteryear in the fight to save today’s libraries.
