This woodcut depicts a town square surrounded by buildings on the top and right edges of the composition as though viewed from above. Within the square is a field delimited by a fence in which a multitude of figures and figures on horseback are engaged in a chaotic battle. Several figures direct large lances toward other figures. Crowds of young and old and male and female figures watch the action from behind the fence and from within doorways, balconies and windows in the surrounding buildings.

This color screenprint is separated into two main parts. At the top is a frame made out of unwrapped candy and wrapped candy bars with an image of a man flexing his arm, while a bikini-clad woman peeks from behind the bicep in the frame. The bottom half of the image has two blue and red stars, one on top of the other at the right, and a television to the left. The television has a handle at the top, with an arm coming from the upper candy-frame to hold the handle, and on the screen is a large moth on a red background.

On a vertically-oriented page, with printed image extending to the borders of the page, there are various scenes and images combined together. There are two main registers. On the bottom, there is a collaged image of a woman putting on lipstick at the beach, and the rear end of a classic car to the right. To the left, there are two smaller frames: on top there is an urban street scene collaged with demolished cars, and on the bottom there is a single scene of a fashion office orstudio with three women. In the top register, there are four main frames. On the right, the largest scene in the print, there is an image of a soldier with a handgun collaged with an image of a small child with a soldier's helmet on his head. The boy holds a bucket. To the left, there are three smaller images, each showing a man and a woman in varying degrees of fancy dress. The overall scene is printed in a vibrant orange color.

This vertical print shows a slick advertising image in the top half with a man and a woman watching an early model television set. The woman is smoking a cigarette. A text box is inserted asking three questions. The bottom half is less slick, simply a diagram and text, some of it in a typewriter font. Text above and below asks about how soon television sets will be widely available in homes and museums. The date 1944 is included in parentheses at the top of the image.
