The Art Deco Posters

The Art Deco Posters



""Posters by their very nature are ephemeral: crookedly plastered on a roadside billboard, tacked to the back of a tabac, they lasted a few weeks until advertisers issued another imaginative argument for soap or an ocean voyage. While few contemporary observers understood the richness of their design or appreciated the ingenuity of their unsung creators, they are now highly prized. William Crouse, long-time poster aficionado, has selected over three hundred of the most sought-after examples of poster art created between the wars to include in this definitive volume. Organized thematically into subject categories (aviation, communication, fashion, etc.), The Art Deco Poster presents a jaunty cavalcade of international poster design, and includes highly rare and even unique examples by masters of the art form, including Nizzoli, Cassandre, and Beall. Each poster--digitally photographed under carefully controlled conditions--is accompanied by an expanded caption that addresses the aesthetic, sociological, economic, and/or political context of the image. Introduced by Art Deco specialist Alastair Duncan, The Art Deco Poster is an essential addition for all interested in graphic design, Art Deco, and life and culture between 1919 and 1939""--
