This is a handsome little book, with attractive reproductions of almost a hundred World War One posters from many different countries. Commentary is minimal: a three page introduction and no text with the pictures except the artist and in some cases the date, the current location, and/or the commissioning agency. These are wonderful examples of graphic art, and this book provides a hendy and well-priced selection. It would have been very much helped, however, by translations of the text. One can see from the English language posters the importance of the interplay between text, picture, and typography. The message of the non-English language posters is weakened by the lack of translation. ( )
