Leo Lionni's Keep 'em Rolling! is another of Lionni's remarkable posters issued by the Bureau of Emergency Management just before Pearl Harbor. The artist sets photos of war materiél both atop and within the taut image of Old Glory. In the role of star an armorer is shown checking the delicate mechanism of an anti-aircraft gun. Photos of a six-man antiaircraft crew appear to climb up and back and stripes of the flag. Lionni's clear bold designs are with parallel in military posters. Very rare. 40x30 near mint, conservation backed.
