Overview

Now available in paperback, this dynamically designed collection of posters immortalizes the contemporary American theater through the discerning eyes and dramatic brush of one of its top poster artists. Here are more than thirty-five posters along with preparatory drawings, photos, and variants produced by James McMullan from 1976 to the present, almost all of them for New York's Lincoln Center Theater. Popular and beloved images from plays from Arcadia and Carousel to Anything Goes and Six Degrees of Separation-with colorful anecdotes and personalities from Wole Soyinka and John Guare to Liv Ullmann, Wendy Wasserstein, and Mike Nichols-capture the New York theater world's essence.

Author Biography: James McMullan, one of America's foremost illustrators, is best known for his Lincoln Center theater posters and the New York magazine cover that inspired the imagery of the film Saturday Night Fever. He teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, where he lives.

Editorial Reviews

Edward Sorel
. . .[M]ore about the act of creativity than the object arrived at. . . .These days posters are prized for their shock rather than their aesthetic value. But this splendid collection shows us what is possible.
