“The political weekly, La Baionnette, was a virtually anti-German publication during World War 1, publishing many anti-war drawings by leading artists of the period from 1915 to 1920. Cappiello contributed numerous covers and two-page center spreads from 1915-1917.” -Rennert, Jack. Cappiello, The Posters of Leonetto Cappiello. New York: The Poster Art Library, 2004, page 21
