Leo Lionni was arguably the best modern graphic designer of his generation. His genius is evident in his designs that create a deceptively simple optical illusion. In his Keep 'em Rolling! Lionni envisions an American flag overlain with photos of war matériel.  A photo of beaming muntions workers takes the role of the stars. Photos of a sleek modern PT boats appear to race both across the across the surface of flag and race up and back ad infinitem. Very rare, one of the few World War II posters in the collection of the Museum of Moden Art in New York. 40x30 near mint, conservation backed.
