July 1942: United We Stand

uscamera.jpgThe Smithsonian Institute has put together a terrific site that looks into depth at the United We Stand, July 1942 campaign that encouraged magazines from all over the nation to print a patriotic, theme related cover. The site has a full database of over 300 magazine covers divided up by different patriotic themes: The War Effort, What We Are Fighting For, Reaching Many Audiences and Designing the Covers. This site is visually rich and very topical considering we are coming up on the first July 4th following 9-11.

I have visited the exhibit and, like the website, it is fascinating on many levels. I blogged it afterwards. At least, visit the website.
