Publisher Comments:

Posters of the Art Deco period, which once graced billboards and walls to advertise every variety of product, service, entertainment, or political cause, are today prized for the richness of their design and ingenuity; they offer inspiration for graphic designers and are highly collectible. Now, William Crouse, a long-time poster aficionado and collector, has selected more than 300 of the most sought-after examples of poster art created between the World Wars to include in this definitive volume. Organized thematically (aviation, communication, fashion, etc.), The Art Deco Poster presents a jaunty cavalcade of international poster design, and includes rare and unique examples by masters of the art form, including Nizzoli, Cassandre, and Beall. Each posterand#8212;superbly photographed under carefully controlled conditionsand#8212;is accompanied by an informative caption that addresses the aesthetic, sociological, economic, and/or political context of the image. The book includes an introduction by well-known Art Deco specialist Alastair Duncan. Praise for The Art Deco Poster:

"A handsome new volume...slick streamlines and speed are in abundance in this great collection of work." - Creative Review

"The time period between the two World Wars was a golden age of graphic design, an era when posters were a true art form. William Crouse has compiled over 300 beautiful examples in his new book, The Art Deco Poster." -PopSugar

"A feast for the eyes, this book is a wonderful study of an important graphic design genre." -Antiques and the Arts Weekly

Synopsis:

Victor Arwas's magnificent book offers a broad insight into the elements of this distinctive decorative style. Arwas discusses the work of Art Deco's leading French exponents — Ruhlmann, Puiforcat, Erte, Dunand, Fouquet, Cassandre, Boucheron, and Icart, to name but a few — as he traces the evolution of the style from its first appearance at the famed 1925 Exposition des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris, from which it took its name.

Synopsis:

The age of Art Deco is one of the most innovative and vibrant periods of textile design. Sophisticated and exotic prints dazzled the world, and ideas generated by avant-garde artists transformed fabrics and fashion. This gorgeous book presents a pictorial record of the fabrics that clothed the smart women and furnished the stylish interiors of Europe and America during the era of jazz, flappers, the Ballets Russes, and so much more.and#160;

Tracing the evolution of Art Deco style, the bold, dramatic, brilliantly colored and patterned fabrics pictured here encompass luxury silks, woven and embroidered textiles, and man-made synthetics by designers such as Paul Poiret, Raoul Dufy, Robert Bofils, Ruth Reeves, and Marion Dorn.
