You probably already knew that the Red Cross has done some great humanitarian work in the 149 years they've existed, but did you know they're also responsible for some seriously great artwork? These recruitment and fundraising posters from WWI show an amazing variety of artwork over only a five-year time span.

All images are in the public domain and can be found in the U.S. Library of Congress Photo Catalog.
