Unfortunately that's coming up "404 - Not Found".

OK, it's at the bottom of this page:

It's my dashtoons.com site/page Geoff AE4RV kindly references -- here's an update.  Prompted by this thread, I clicked my own link and discovered the US Navy Museum store no longer seems to list prints of the John Falter painting on which the WWII WAVES "It's a Woman's War Too!" poster is based. Store search turned up nothing.  I queried the store via email, and will relay any answer I receive.  Reproductions of the poster are available variously online, which you can find, using the above title in quotes."  What the store previously offered was a repro of the original painting, from which the image in the poster was tightly cropped. In the painting the operator is surrounded by a Rembrandt rich darkness, which is very atmospheric and adds to the drama of her pose and luminosity of her face.  I especially like the "dark space" because it mirrors what it's like to be lost your mind's eye "view" of the signals one hears -- at it's most abstract and beautiful as dense CW traffic. The museum store originally offered posters of the painting in several sizes and a couple of repro qualities.  I feared, without direct evidence, that the significantly more expensive repro was some sort of cheesy faux textural effect to mimic a painting, so I opted for the cheapo repro, which turned out fine for my less-than-museum quality shack. Once I hear from the USN Museum store I'll correct and amend my Falter Feedline page.  73 Jeff K1NSS & Dash! The Dog-Faced Ham

Let us know. It seems they don't sell prints any more.

(And Hi, Jeff!)

Hey Geoff,

Heard nothing from USN Museum Store.  Did a little search and came up with this pricey option: http://www.requestaprint.net/navy/gallery.php?gallery_id=20 They offer reproductions of the original painting as well as the poster.  Their "Standard Prints" start at $75.  BTW, I came across an original 14 x20 recruiting  card for sale at $275, http://www.dpvintageposters.com/cgi-local/detail.cgi?d=6077 so if anyone has enough mad money to drop for the fancier repro/framing options, going full partial boat might be in reach!  For the rest of us, the Library of Congress repro service might be the most affordable route: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/item/92505327/

You can get a hi-res digital file here (see bottom of page). This is what I printed and framed for my shack.

I swear that is not a joke URL. This version has what appears to be water spots on it, though. I remember spending some time in Photoshop "cloning them up" some. If anyone wants my somewhat restored file write me via QRZ and I'll see if I can dig it up.
