This pictorial history considers the poster as an art form interacting with the other visual arts of its times as well as a social document. The illustrations in this book are drawn from The Museum of Modern Art’s collection of over 2000 posters, by artists working in all styles and media, from the powerful lithographs of the turn of the century to the ‘ psychedelic’ brilliance and technical ingenuity of today’s experimenters: work by Cheret , Bonnard, Lautrec, Mucha, Hohlwein, Kokoschka, Tschichold, Bayer, Kauffer, Cassandre, Picasso, Moscoso, Max, Gee, Shahn, Lionni, and Stella.”
