The poster has always existed at the junction of the fine and applied arts, of. culture and commerce. Throughout. its one-hundred-year history-~-which parallels the history of modern art itself-the poster has provided an arena where painting, drawing, photography, and typography have come together, influencing each other in the process. In this book the lively interaction between design and fine art is described in terms of all the principal styles and movements of the modern period. The author also discusses the evolution of this unique medium, outlining its cultural as well as aesthetic development.'
