FROM NORTH KOREA, WITH LOVE
a heartwarming message
The above photo caught my eye. It's a propaganda poster from a factory in your favorite totalitarian state, North Korea. Obviously P'yongyang is strutting its stuff in terms of wartime rhetoric.

From a strictly artistic standpoint, I think the poster is pretty slick-looking. Very reminiscent of the old World War I and II posters produced in the U.S. and elsewhere. Wish I knew exactly what the slogan on this poster said--although I can take a wild guess.
