Penfield, Harper's July DFP 346, 1895

"The German Struggle for Liberty." This original turn-of-the-century poster for Harper's literary magazine features a watchful soldier standing guard.

Artist Edward Penfield, Harper's art director, designed a poster each month between 1894 and 1899. He introduced the art poster to Americans after the French had popularized advertising posters as the "art of the people" in the streets of Paris.
