The 20Th-Century Poster: Design of the Avant-Garde
by Walker Art Center
Publisher's Description
The poster has occupied a curious position in twentieth century art. On the one hand--by their very nature--posters must unite form and content in order to communicate a message. On the other hand, twentieth century posters have often been a primary vehicle for carrying the spirit of the avant-garde to the public. This volume explores this dual phenomenon with numerous illustrations and a lively commentary. Included are examples of posters designed by Aleksandr Rodchenko, Georg Trump, John Heartfield, and Man Ray. Published in conjunction with a 1984 exhibition at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.
