Dole Queues And Demons

£14.99

Product description

Bold amalgams of graphic design, psychology, and art, election posters have remained unsung-and sometimes even maligned-since their inception at the beginning of the twentieth century. Through a careful selection from among the more than seven hundred posters in the Bodleian Librarys Conservative Party Archive, this lavishly illustrated volume charts the evolution of the election posters created by Britains Conservative Party. Organized chronologically and by political period, each chapter begins with a brief introduction highlighting the major themes of the period as well as the specific issues individual posters were designed to engage. Rounding out the discussion is a foreword by advertising tycoon Maurice Saatchi, who discusses the posters from a communications and design perspective. At a time when the new media seems poised to put an end to more traditional forms of mass communication, Dole Queues and Demons offers a timely retrospective of an enduring feature of the British electoral landscape.

A paperback book in very good condition. Some slight shelf but the pages are crisp and the illustrations bold and colourful.
