The best way to learn history is to visualize it! Since 1998, Josh MacPhee has commissioned and produced over one hundred posters by over eighty artists that pay tribute to revolution, racial justice, women's rights, queer liberation, labor struggles, and creative activism and organizing. Celebrate People's History! presents these essential moments—acts of resistance and great events in an often hidden history of human and civil rights struggles—as a visual tour through decades and across continents, from the perspective of some of the most interesting and socially engaged artists working today. Celebrate People's History includes artwork by Cristy Road, Swoon, Nicole Schulman, Christopher Cardinale, Sabrina Jones, Eric Drooker, Klutch, Carrie Moyer, Laura Whitehorn, Dan Berger, Ricardo Levins Morales, Chris Stain, and more.

The Poster: Art, Advertising, Design, and Collecting, 1860sÐ1900s is a cultural history that situates the poster at the crossroads of art, design, advertising, and collecting. Though international in scope, the book focuses especially on France and England. Ruth E. Iskin argues that the avant-garde poster and the original art print played an important role in the development of a modernist language of art in the 1890s, as well as in the adaptation of art to an era of mass media. She moreover contends that this new form of visual communication fundamentally redefined relations between word and image: poster designers embedded words within the graphic, rather than using images to illustrate a text. Posters had to function as effective advertising in the hectic environment of the urban street. Even though initially commissioned as advertisements, they were soon coveted by collectors. Iskin introduces readers to the late nineteenth-century ÒiconophileÓÑa new type of collector/curator/archivist who discovered in poster collecting an ephemeral archaeology of modernity. Bridging the separation between the fields of art, design, advertising, and collecting, IskinÕs insightful study proposes that the poster played a constitutive role in the modern culture of spectacle. This stunningly illustrated book will appeal to art historians and students of visual culture, as well as social and cultural history, media, design, and advertising.

The unique collaborative relationship between text and image has allowed the once-humble poster to evolve distinctive strategies of persuasion that have transformed modern advertising. Closely related to contemporary developments in the visual arts—in particular Futurism and Art Deco—these advances also reflect the contemporary confluence between art and graphic design. Focusing on the innovative visual equivalents of conventional textual ways of communicating meaning—metaphor, metonymy, and rebus—Poetics of the Poster looks at how modern-day signage—from airline logos to tourism advertisements to boxing match announcements—wields maximum persuasive power over viewers.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ... defect. No French poster designer is either ashamed to sign his drawings, or is precluded from doing so by the advertiser. He does not consider he is debasing his art in descending to the decoration of the hoardings; but rather that, in giving his best, he is ennobling the poster and spreading abroad a knowledge of the beautiful. In this account of French posters and their makers many names must necessarily be omitted, but those mentioned are fairly typical examples ofthe best practisers of French art. Collectors will perhaps miss such names as Lorrain, Gervais, Gerbault, Meunier, Anquetin, Artigue, Beylac, Bonnard, Choubrac, Clairin, Forain, Fraipont, Gausson, Giran, Goissard, Guerard, Guyot, juillerat, Lefevre, Lepur, Lunel, Marten, Michele, Nelaton, Oge, Sinet, Vallotton, Verneuil, and a score of other industrious workers who have contributed delightful examples of their art to posterdom. These artists individually have not been prolific, and their work presents no features that have not been fully illustrated in the references to the posters of their busier confreres. XII SPANIsH Pos'rERs THE art of the poster is now well established in the Peninsula, where a flourishing school is located in Barcelona, the acknowledged centre of all art-movement in Spain; and taking into consideration the geographical position of that city, it is no doubt safe to assume that it has received its art-stimulus from its northern neighbour, France, the birthplace and nursery of the artistic poster. The work of these Spanish assichistes is so good, and shows so much variety, resource, _and originality, that it will be profitable to examine it in detail. Of Spanish placardists, undoubtedly A. de Riquer stands first...

This is a fascinating look at the medium of the poster in the current climate of competing electronic communication. Angharad Lewis, from UK magazine Grafik, discusses the success and failure of the poster as a medium today, against rival mediums such as
