Profusely illutsrated, good content - pity it is tatty, grubby, dog-eared and ex-library.

Dedication
First words
They cover the walls that flank our streets; they are part of the landscape of our cities, and if, suddenly, it was decreed that they must disappear, we would have the impression that all color had disappeared from the urban landscape, that the city walls had turned a mournful gray.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393322378, Paperback)

A profusely illustrated survey of posters from the French Revolution to the present.

Posters are found in public places all over the world. They are usually visually striking, designed to attract the attention of passers-by and entice them to purchase a particular product or service, make them aware of a political viewpoint, or attend a specific event. This remarkable study is an overview of posters throughout history, as well as a representative survey of mass culture from the time of the French Revolution to 2000. Over 450 posters are reproduced here, 250 in full color, selected for both their historical import and their beauty. Author Max Gallo's informative text recapitulates the social and political currents of the day and places each poster in its historical context. The book also includes an essay on the development of poster art by art critic Carlo Arturo Quintavelle. 200 color and 200 black-and-white illustrations.
