Propaganda Poster

Lindsay was a brilliant illustrator and he let his imagination loose in a series of vivid anti-German posters.  Here, the 'Hun' is not even human: a brutal gorilla-like monster reaching out to crush the entire world.  Lindsay makes the point that although the spilling of blood begins in distant Europe, it is steadily dripping towards Australia.
