In his posters for Pirelli, "The Philadelphia Enquirer, Renault, or Roth Handle, images and ideas came together in a way as simple as it was compelling, creating signs of great associative force. His was a highly regarded contribution to graphic design's breakthrough into the age of mass communication; it introduced wit and a sense of using resources economically. "Poster Collection 10 brings together numerous posters created by Engelmann, who died prematurely at the age of 38.
