Description

Long-time poster aficionado William Crouse has selected over 300 of the most sought-after examples of poster art created between the wars for this definitive volume. Organized thematically into subject categories (aviation, communication, fashion and more), this book includes over 300 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, Art Deco Posters is an essential addition for all interested in graphic design, Art Deco, and life and culture between 1919 and 1939.
