This complete international history of poster design from the Art Nouveau to the present covers all of the significant developments in poster design, and every important type of poster, from wine and war to rock and rebellion. One thousand posters illustrate the work of virtually every significant artist and graphic designer who ever created a memorable poster, including a generous selection of contemporary work. Organized chronologically, with thematic sections devoted to design styles as well as popular history, The Poster
is also a visual chronicle of world culture from the late 19th century to the present. Finally, The Poster
is an appealing design object in itself, and a terrific way to experience the pleasures of graphic design.
