We Can Do It! 30 Inspirational Postcards for Hard Times Synopsis

Roll up your sleeves and make ends meet with this stirring collection of motivational classics. Times are tough. But there's no need to despair! Inside this postcard collection are 30 motivational messages from yesteryear that have relevance for everyone today. From growing your own food, healthy eating and saving gas, rubber, water and paper to repairing clothes, there are dozens of postcards here that will inspire even the most world-weary and economically depressed. The images come from a range of public information posters from the 1930s up to the Sixties. There are homefront war posters, such as the timeless Rosie the Riveter by J. Howard Miller, who instills positivity and a get go attitude. The classic World War II Dig for Victory and Make Do and Mend slogans are just as relevant today, as we all squeeze to make ends meet, and the modern popularity of the now ubiquitous Keep Calm and Carry On poster reveals how messages from the past are pertinent today. So roll up those sleeves, turn off that dripping tap, grow your own vegetables, and then preserve them! Dont forget, together, We can do it.
