Nice example of American Second World War propaganda, entreating citizens and sailors not to divulge unnecessary information, lest they lead to the deaths of military or civilian personnel.

Subtitled "Loose Talk Can Cost Lives," the purpose of the poster is to warn citizens against discussing sensitive subjects in such a way that the war effort could be undermined. Using Dohanos's recognizable name, this map was sold to benefit ambulance charities.

Stevan Dohanos

Dohanos is best remembered for his Saturday Evening Post Covers in the American style of Grant Wood and Edward Hopper. He also produced several World War II posters for the "Don't Talk" series. Dohanos completed several governmental commissions over his career, including many postage stamps. The Postal Service's Hall of Stamps is dedicated in his honor.
