Constructed of thin stock and measuring approximately 24cm by 18cm, the propaganda leaflet features instructions on folding the the four pigs to resemble the face of a sad Hitler. Despite showing a great deal of folding the leaflet remains wholly in-tact. Despite many reproductions of this leaflet this original piece retains both the instructions and the “Duplicating Prohibited” text. A fine and desirable example of humorous anti-Hitler propaganda.
