About this deal

With bimago, you can decorate your house the way you always wanted, the sky and your imagination is the limit. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. The poster was created by photographer Victor Baldwin, when he took his cat Sassy out for a photoshoot in the mid-1960s.

There were several versions of the "Hang in There, Baby" poster, featuring a picture of a cat or kitten, hanging onto a stick, tree branch, pole or rope. I was thinking: wouldn’t it be neat to paint a reproduction of a famous artwork, and then stick your head through a hole in the canvas? If you’ve already done that, your item hasn’t arrived, or it’s not as described, you can report that to Etsy by opening a case.It can bring a bit of humour and lightness into the house, which can be especially useful in plain, modern decor. On February 18, 2021, the value investor Keith Gill was invited to testify on the GameStop short squeeze at the United States House Committee on Financial Services. Wiki, whose real name was Sassy, was not only featured in the book in that now famous pose, but also on the back cover.

Hang In There, Baby" is cited as one of the more prominent precursors to LOLcats, and there are several LOLcat images devoted to a cat hanging off a tree branch.The original "Hang In There, Baby" poster (shown below) was published in late 1971 by photographer Victor Baldwin.

This is where motivational posters reveal their true magic and can have a calming, creative and inspiring effect on us.

The posters were faintly reminiscent of Soviet propaganda posters and radiated a similar amount of charm and motivation. But although that acrobatic cat is the most well known, the history of motivational posters actually goes much further back, all the way to World War I.

If you’d like to file an allegation of infringement, you’ll need to follow the process described in our Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy. After the United States joined the conflict in 1917, the government devised a plan to use posters to get more people involved in the war effort. Dickenson, Republican from Alabama, and Samuel Devine, Republican from Ohio, presented him with a "Hang in There, Baby" poster signed by 100 members of Congress as a token of encouragement and support. Baldwin saw the demand as the opportunity it was and so produced a poster of the image, deciding to add a caption which comprised four words and one comma: ‘Hang In There, Baby’. After The Music Man composer Meredith Wilson purchased the first copy of the poster, demand quickly increased over the 1970s.

As a “matter of integrity” Baldwin, who has held the copyright to the original image since 1970, sued each infringement he could find, winning every case. In the bimago collection, you will see pictures and paintings, but also funny graphics and well-known motifs, such as hang in there cat poster. He also worked as animal portraiture and photo editor for Cat Fancy and Dog Fancy magazines, which I think deserve their own reviews one day as not only were they spectacularly titled magazines but also have their own rich history. Scientists suspect that motivational posters have a priming effect on people; a kind of subconscious preparation that results in certain associations and reactions. Like I said earlier, the poster does little to inspire me personally, but I can’t deny the effect it had in its time.
