Description
For more than 200 years posters occupied public places all over the world, intended to attract the attention of passersby to a political viewpoint, an entertainment or sporting event, or a desirable product. Striking, often highly symbolic, the best are as avidly collected as fine art, with some valued in the thousands of dollars. French essayist Max Gallo—also the biographer of Garibaldi, Mussolini, and Napoleon—provides this overview of the development of the poster in light of its social and historical context, first published in 1972. More than 280 large color reproductions, with 200 more in black and white, provide a survey of mass culture from the French Revolution to the turn of the 20th century. This edition has been updated by Charles Flowers.
