Over 300 of the most sought-after examples of poster art created between the wars are included in this definitive volume.
This cavalcade of international poster design features rare and even unique examples by masters of the art form, including Nizzoli, Cassandre and Beall. Each poster – carefully re-photographed – is accompanied by an extended caption that discusses the aesthetic, social, economic, or political context of the image.
Posters are by their very nature ephemeral: on a billboard or tacked to a news stand, they last only a few weeks but are now highly prized by collectors.
Introduced by Art Deco specialist Alastair Duncan, The Art Deco Poster is an essential book for all interested in graphic design, Art Deco, and life and culture in the Jazz Age.
