Description:

Anti-alcohol propaganda poster. This composition is atypical in a way that most poster of the type depict alcohol or drunk people, blurred vision or anything that is directly related to drinking heavily. On this piece bebbing drunk is only represented by the word 'drunkenness' (ittasság) written in a disordered manner, unlike the word 'causes accidents' (balesetet okoz) what is completely organized. 

The image is a close-up of a man's head bound up in bandage. Although his face is a simple cartoon like depiciton, the artist managed to make his face expressive and create a  worrisome atmosphere.
