Modern French Posters
The modern poster began in Paris, where artists like Chéret, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Mucha skillfully embellished the city with colorful creations that symbolize the florid lifestyles of the Belle-Époque. This book traces the history of the modern poster as a testament to the times and features 227 works from the beginnings of this genre to Art Nouveau, Art Déco, and the war years.
This is the second book in Japanese publisher Seigensha's design collection series. Each volume is a convenient pocket edition filled with graphic works that serve as a treasure trove of graphic design history and historic inspiration.
