The Liberty Posters by Ragnar Redbeard & Benjamin DeCasseres Now Available

Underworld Amusements proudly presents two posters from two of their published authors, Benjamin DeCasseres and Ragnar Redbeard, approaching American Liberty at two different angles. ORDER NOW   Benjamin DeCasseres personifies America in an unironic celebration of the history of the nation titled “I Am the United States.” DeCasseres was a thorough-going anti-German, and this poster, originally released by the National Republic magazine in the 1940s, was his drum-beat to go to war against the totalitarian states abroad.

Spinoza: Liberator of God and Man & Against the Rabbis – Now Available from Underworld Amusements

Celebrating the 300th birthday of his relative Benedict Spinoza (1632 – 1677) saw Benjamin DeCasseres release two volumes about the man and his work.
