Lot 104 - 'Someone forgot that food costs lives'.<br />
<br />
A fascinating archive of iconic World War Two recruiting posters - some which have never been seen before - has emerged for sale for £10,000.<br />
<br />
Among the 150 posters up for grabs are three thought never to have made it into production featuring Adolf Hitler, Nazi spin doctor Joseph Goebbels and Luftwaffe chief Hermann Goerring.<br />
<br />
It is thought the designs were blocked from print because Brits might not have recognised the enemy leaders and might have taken the messages to "take time off" literally.<br />
<br />
Other highlights include a copy of artist Abram Games' 'Blonde Bombshell' poster which was controversially withdrawn from circulation because it was deemed too glamorous. <br />
<br />
The posters, said to be in mint condition, will be sold in 91 separate lots at Penzance Auction House in Cornwall on November 6.
