Herbert Matter (1907-1984) was a Swiss-born American photographer and graphic designer known for his pioneering use of photomontage in commercial art. The designer's innovative and experimental work helped shape the vocabulary of 20th-century graphic design. Rare among posters, this one is dramatically laid out higher than its message. At first glance it is a superb aviation poster or a poster more patriotic than its text. The angry sweeping bird was posed by a great American eagle in the National Zoological Park, Washington, DC and photographed by Arthur H. Fisher.
