Posters, A Concise History.
By John Barnicoat.
Published by Thames and Hudson in 1986.
A survey of the history of poster design by John Barnicoat, first published by Thames and Hudson in the 1972, and this lovely printing in 1986.
From Art Nouveau posters by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, to surrealist posters by Ferdinand Lunel, to obscure, comic posters by Yoshitaro Isaka, this book is ‘a lucid and thoughtful’ study of poster design, and how it has contributed to the history of modern art.
