‘Mozert’ to ‘Tokio’

Today’s image is a complete contrast to the racist violence of the secondary posters from yesterday, though the intent, from wartime America, is exactly the same.


A classic calendar (see below) cheesecake artwork, this is unusual in being painted by ‘Zoë Mozert’, born as Alice Adelaide Moser, as shown here.


Not a lot more to say about this, except note the tricolour band across the bottom of the month – a common motif back then, rarely seen today, and in this context that red white and blue, as well as the other nationalistic items feeds into the story of the roundel – which we will get to before the year’s out.
