Description:

I report, I've joined the army. Pusztai Pál's poster advertising a posctard series. The series were done for the commission of the War Office and basically were pre-written postcards which the soldiers could send their families to let them know that they felt fine. It was a typical Socialist way of dealing with issues. Pretend that everything was ok and fit everything to pre-made schemes regardless of the real situation. 

The  designer of this poster Pál Pusztai was a caricaturist and all his works are humorous and cheerful with cartoon-like happy figures. For example one for the Hunyadi János bitter water or the Igmándi medical water.
