A Message from Franz Joseph

An amazing poster for this Friday. The content is the declaration of war against Serbia, on July 28, 1914, by Franz Joseph, the Emperor of Austria. The text is in Italian because this poster was published for his Italian-speaking citizens, who lived mainly in Trentino (now in Italy).

On the background, behind the text, the portrait of the old Emperor is shown, in a very modern way.
