"Don't buy it" and other quaint mottos of wars past

In this age of wartime tax cuts and "patriotic shopping," the World War II posters of the Kittleson Collection at the Minneapolis Public Library show a very different view of patriotism, cooperation, and conservation than we see during today's wars. Published between 1939 and 1945 (but many of the following are from 1943, when American pocketbooks were stretched thinnest), they represent art from several countries in Europe, including the UK (the last example).
