A good poster has many layers, it goes beyond advertising and makes statements about style, history, fashion, and taste at the time. It is these layers that can turn a poster into a work of art. This book showcases 480 posters by more than 200 artists and designers and tells a comprehensive history of the poster. The book includes #artnouveau #bauhaus #popart , and contemporary posters from preeminent artists such as #AlphonseMucha, #EgonSchiele, #PabloPicasso, and #AndyWarhol and from noted designers ranging from #LucianBernhard and #AMCassandre to #SaulBass, #TadanoriYokoo, and #StefanSagmeister. The book also introduces many other leading poster designers whose names are less well-known. Contemporary advertisements for #CalvinKlein, #UnitedColorsofBenetton, and #Coachella are also explored. By tracing the history of the poster, this book shows social developments throughout the world and illuminates how art styles have changed over time.
