About this deal

The posters worked so well to mobilize people to join the Army ranks, in fact, that private companies took note. Baldwin did receive a few complaints from people who felt that posing a cat as depicted in the poster constituted animal cruelty. It also appeared in a Terminator film, on a Survivor episode, the 2003 film The Cat in the Hat, and more. The original "Hang In There, Baby" poster (shown below) was published in late 1971 by photographer Victor Baldwin.

Below it is a single word, prominently positioned in capital letters and neatly combined with a platitude. Baldwin saw the demand as the opportunity it was and so produced a poster of the image, deciding to add a caption which comprised four words and one comma: ‘Hang In There, Baby’. In 1970, Victor and Jeanne produced the book, The Outcast Kitten, [3] featuring the photographs Victor had made of Sassy and other cats he owned at the time. Sassy, who has the fictional name Wiki in the book, is a lost kitten adopted by a mother cat with two kittens of her own.

I was thinking: wouldn’t it be neat to paint a reproduction of a famous artwork, and then stick your head through a hole in the canvas? They can look impressive in contemporary and even industrial designs, but most importantly, they perfectly suit the retro style. After The Music Man composer Meredith Wilson purchased the first copy of the poster, demand quickly increased over the 1970s. Baldwin later spoke of receiving letters from people thanking him, saying it helped them through accidents, and surgeries, and a number of other difficult events where they needed a reminder to Hang in There . Dickenson, Republican from Alabama, and Samuel Devine, Republican from Ohio, presented him with a "Hang in There, Baby" poster signed by 100 members of Congress as a token of encouragement and support.

You can find all kinds of great work where photographs look like paintings, and sticking my head through some great art sounded fun. I can’t say that looking at that startled cat hanging from a branch has ever stirred much inspiration inside of me, although that may be because in my mind the cat looks like its about to fall. And you can be afraid to fall, you can be terrified, that’s okay, just don’t let it stop you from doing the thing. As a “matter of integrity” Baldwin, who has held the copyright to the original image since 1970, sued each infringement he could find, winning every case.It can bring a bit of humour and lightness into the house, which can be especially useful in plain, modern decor. Cats are marvellous motifs for wall decoration, not only in the case of nurseries, kid's rooms or even eclectic, boho interiors.

We have all kinds of untypical wall decorations, so no matter if you need a nursery decoration or motivational cat posters, bimago is the right place for you.In fact, the popularity of these cards and posters through the years shows just how powerful motivational quotes can be, given the right context. After the United States joined the conflict in 1917, the government devised a plan to use posters to get more people involved in the war effort. The original poster was one of the earliest motivational posters, and is now considered collectible, often selling for many times its original value.
