Step into a bygone era with this rare 1943 Dr. Seuss hanging banner, a powerful piece of wartime propaganda that urged people to "Starve the Squander Bug - and Buy More War Bonds." Crafted in traditional Seussian style, this banner is a visual masterpiece, brimming with historical significance and whimsy.

Theodor Geisel, known worldwide as Dr. Seuss for his beloved children's books, played a significant role during World War II when he worked for the U.S. government, designing posters like this one to foster patriotism and encourage investment. His political engagement during this crucial time showcased his commitment to the war effort and the nation's wellbeing.

At its core, this banner features the iconic Squander Bug, a character initially introduced in British World War II propaganda to discourage careless spending. Here, two Squander Bugs sit at each end, voraciously devouring money, while standing against a bold red square backdrop framed by a vibrant green circle. In the center, a gray field proudly displays the words "war bonds" in bold green text, driving home the banner's vital message.

A truly one-of-a-kind piece of WW2 history.
