The Best Art from the British Government - Lessons from WWII: Beware of Smart Blonds

I love this poster. She doesn't even look particularly German. It's good art and there's a something extremely ironic about this in a 3rd-wave feminist sort of way. Can't put my finger on it. Artist Harold Forster did this beautiful piece as well, which I may post about at a future date.

I have that poster! Framed, in fact! Bought it at the International Spy Museum in DC (a wonderful place, btw). I also have a "Beware of Female Spies" coffee mug.
