Illustrations I drew for the interior of the book Old Ironsides by Col. David Fitz-Enz. I’m a big admirer of the 1950s and 60s pen & ink work of illustrators Edwin Tunis and Eric Sloane, so I was happy to attempt art similar to their own. —Andrew

In WWII the US government’s Office of War Information was responsible for propaganda like posters, films, radio programs, etc. They also worked with American book publishers to produce books. I wrote an article about it on BooksForVictory.com
