The Poster In History

£14.99

Product description

To look back over the poster of years past is to see the people of different times, in their period settings, in the process of being sold something. A review of the posters of the past is, in effect, a graphic review of the mass culture of the past, of history itself. The posters in this book were chosen because of their historical significance rather than for their artistic merit. The time covered by the book is from the period of the French Revolution to the present.

Hardback book in very good condition. Light shelf wear to edges, small dents to bottom edges. Comes with a good to very good dust jacket, shelf worn, with creasing at the corners, and some light scratch marks to the cover. There is a small closed tear to the top right hand corner of the front cover. The spine is somewhat discoloured, with a small tear to the top rear edge.
