5.0 out of 5 stars Way Cool book. 15 Sep 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great book. It showcases posters and other visual messages from sports, government, counterculture and activist groups, and advertising from the late 1800's to the present. Some of the posters are very illuminating of the times in which they were created, and they show how our societal ideas have evolved (for better or worse) since. It is fascinating and enjoyable reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and valuable. 17 April 2002
By Quickhappy - Published on Amazon.com
An exquisite collection of mostly American posters. Most are from the last century, with a healthy sampling from WWI and WWII, as well as sampling of rock art, commercial posters, and sports posters. A great strenth of the book is the attention it devotes to the representations and self-representations of women and ethnic minorities. Some of the most powerful pieces in the book are the many protest posters from the 1960s and 1970s. The book offers minimal text to analyze the work; instead concentrating on high quality prints from an excellent and wide-ranging assortment of American posters. A valuable and beautiful fragment of history.
