Description
Exploring the interaction between modern art, design, and the 20th-century vision of utopia in Britain, this book considers the poster as a medium that integrated all of these developing communications. As the capabilities of poster printing matured, avant-garde artists embraced the new and highly public medium as a way of expressing their own talents, and the images here speak broadly of people, landscape, technology, and identity in Britain through such themes as transport, architecture, the seaside, accident prevention, and popular culture. They demonstrate the evolving visual language of progressive modernism, including the transformation of commercial illustration into graphic design.

"The history of the modern British poster from 1915 to 1970 is nothing less than a potted history of British society, culture, politics and the economy in that period. It is also, of course, a history of art and design as well as advertising."Observer (London)

"It's impossible not to leaf through Modern British Posters without experiencing a wistful longing for times past. For despite the vicissitudes of the eras represented, one thing was remarkably constant; the sheer brilliance of public art and design."Wallpaper
