The Poster: Art, Advertising, Design, and Collecting, 1860sÐ1900s is a cultural history that situates the poster at the crossroads of art, design, advertising, and collecting. Though international in scope, the book focuses especially on France and England. Ruth E. Iskin argues that the avant-garde poster and the original art print played an important role in the development of a modernist language of art in the 1890s, as well as in the adaptation of art to an era of mass media. She moreover contends that this new form of visual communication fundamentally redefined relations between word and image: poster designers embedded words within the graphic, rather than using images to illustrate a text. Posters had to function as effective advertising in the hectic environment of the urban street. Even though initially commissioned as advertisements, they were soon coveted by collectors. Iskin introduces readers to the late nineteenth-century ÒiconophileÓÑa new type of collector/curator/archivist who discovered in poster collecting an ephemeral archaeology of modernity. Bridging the separation between the fields of art, design, advertising, and collecting, IskinÕs insightful study proposes that the poster played a constitutive role in the modern culture of spectacle. This stunningly illustrated book will appeal to art historians and students of visual culture, as well as social and cultural history, media, design, and advertising.

From 1968 to 1971, anyone could drop in to the basement in Camden Town and commission a poster from the Poster Workshop. In walked workers on strike, tenants associations, civil rights groups and liberation movements from all over the world. Inspired by the Atelier Populaire, set up in Paris in May 1968, the posters were made quickly to respond to what was needed, on a great number of themes: Vietnam, Northern Ireland, housing, workers rights, and revolution. The Poster Workshop thrived on the energy generated by the belief that huge changes were possible, through movements for equality, civil rights, freedom and revolution. It was an expression of that time - of excitement, change and hope.

The unique collaborative relationship between text and image has allowed the once-humble poster to evolve distinctive strategies of persuasion that have transformed modern advertising. Closely related to contemporary developments in the visual arts—in particular Futurism and Art Deco—these advances also reflect the contemporary confluence between art and graphic design. Focusing on the innovative visual equivalents of conventional textual ways of communicating meaning—metaphor, metonymy, and rebus—Poetics of the Poster looks at how modern-day signage—from airline logos to tourism advertisements to boxing match announcements—wields maximum persuasive power over viewers.
