False Shame and Fear May Destroy Your Future

This WPA Federal Art Project poster was created in Rochester, N.Y. between 1936 and 1938 to encourage testing and treatment for syphilis: 'Syphilis. False shame and fear may destroy your future. Have your blood tested.' The poster was illustrated by Erik Hans Krause.

About Our Paper
We print on mould-made 100% cotton rag, acid-free archival papers or heavyweight Exhibition Gallery Canvas. Each print is inspected before shipping.

All of our prints come with a margin: 8.5x11 and 11x17 prints have .50-inch margins; 19x13 prints have 1-inch margins; 22x17 prints have 1.5 inch margins; 30x24 Special Edition and 47x34 Magnum prints have 2-inch margins. Canvas prints have slightly wider margins for stretching. If an image's dimensions do not exactly match the paper's dimensions there will be a wider margin along the narrowest side.
