This book, with an introductory essay to set the scene, re-enacts some 50 years of poster art. The 124 full-colour plates reflect with a particular directness the development both of the poster itself and of a tradition in quality set firmly on course by Frank Pick. Variety is the key not both in style and subject, for the first aim of the poster designer is impact. Thus it is no coincidence that McKnight Kauffer should rub shoulders with Fred Taylor, Rex Whistler with Graham Sutherland, Hans Unger with Laura Knight. Condition: light toning to dust-wrapper’s spine, otherwise very good.
