As the cover announces, this booklet presents "a series of caricatures from the brush of Boris Artzybasheff" (1899-1965), caricatures that serve a dual purpose.  The strongly inked illustrations, in Artzybasheff's distinctive anthromorphizing style, portray the demise of the Axis powers, and at the same time promote the numerous products of the Wickwire Spencer Steel Company and their role in the Allied war effort.  A fine piece of commercial and patriotic promotion.  

AS IS! Please see photos. More photos available upon request.
