Overview

Although the last twenty years have brought increased awareness of the force and significance of posters, this book is the first to focus exclusively on those created in the United States. Featured here are 120 enticing posters created by some of the most popular American artists and graphic designers of the last hundred years - including Will Bradley, Ben Shahn, Robert Rauschenberg, Rupert Garcia, Georgia O'Keeffe, Wes Wilson, Norman Rockwell, Victor Moscoso, and the Guerrilla Girls - as well as splendid works by less familiar artists. The plate section is divided into five categories that address the social, commercial, political, and cultural roles of posters: American Events, Designed to Sell, Patriots and Protestors, Advice for Americans, and Sports. Persuasive images such as these continue to play an integral part in almost every aspect of American life. Biographical entries on the artists, a concise guide to postermaking terms, a bibliography, and both subject and chronological indexes serve to make this volume an invaluable reference tool.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As Elizabeth Broun, director of the National Museum of American Art (NMAA), states in the foreword, the power of posters is that 'Image and text are distilled to their essence, readable at a glance and assimilable on the deepest levels.' Visiting curator Heyman has pulled 121 of these from the NMAA's collections . . .To highlight the distinctive 'American' flavor in these posters of the past century, Heyman has organized them together by category, such as 'Patriots and Protesters' or 'Sports.' There is James Montgomery Flagg's famous image of Uncle Sam ('I want you for the U.S. Army') as well as an unknown artist's draft-resistance poster of Joan Baez and her two sisters ('Girls say yes to boys who say No'). There are examples of the very simple posters for Harper's Weekly, famous movie posters, psychedelic concert posters from the '60s, and more recent environmental and AIDS posters. Aside from the lavish reproductions, there is a glossary, brief biographies of the makers, an extensive bibliography, and a chronological index. -- Joseph C. Hewgley, Nashville Public Library
