Ben Shahn is an important point of reference for a number of Justseeds artists, so we are extremely excited to be able to offer this Ben Shahn poster from the War Resisters League. Produced by the WRL back in 1983 as a commemoration of their 60th anniversary, we have a small number of these original posters available. It's a rare chance to get an inexpensive Ben Shahn print produced with permission of his estate.
