Kitchener Wants You
Kitchener Wants You presents new facts about the 'Kitchener' poster, and goes on to explore why this poster, among hundreds of others, has survived as such a cultural and design icon.
Evidence is provided to prove that the poster was indeed seen across the UK, debunking the ideas of previous researchers and curators who have questioned its very existence.
One hundred years from Lord Kitchener's death aboard HMS Hampshire in June 1916, Kitchener Wants You shows how the great man is remembered from the image on the poster rather than from what he really looked like and how, like Chinese whispers, facts change over the years.
Published 100 years after Lord Kitchener's death. Foreword by Lady Kenya Tatton Brown, a great niece of Lord Kitchener
