It’ll Be a Great Day

War Resisters League
Price
$25

A classic poster from the War Resisters League vaults. A child’s drawing is accompanied by the text: “It’ll be a great day when our day care centers have all the money they need and the navy has to hold a bake sale to buy battleships.”

There is a still a poster in circulation with this text on it and a saturated photo of kids playing on a playground dome, but this poster seems much more scarce. It was printed at Tower Press, I suspect in the early 1980s. The International Institute for Social History in Amsterdam has a copy of this poster, which is undated, but they attribute the design to B. K. Guillet, the name written in the top left corner. I am still unsure if that means Guillet is the illustrator as well.
