(Preface) 'Wherever a large number of people converge or pass by, there the ubiquitous poster is likely to loom with an instant message. Some of these graphic eye-catchers amuse, some tease, some inform, some even offend, but all are designed to arouse an emotional response, all are intended to persuade the viewer to act or react in a specific way.

To look back over the posters of years past is to see the people of different times, in their period settings, in the process of being sold something. A review of the posters of the past is, in effect, a graphic review of the mass culture of the past, of history itself. The posters in this book were chosen because of their historical significance rather than for their artistic merit - although some that say the most interesting are also the most beautiful and the most original.'
