In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of America's entrance into World War I, this hardcover edition features fine reproductions of 100 of the era's greatest posters. The period witnessed a renaissance in poster art, thanks to advances in technology in terms of inks, papers, and printing techniques as well as renewed interest in the genre. From the thousands of examples produced in Europe and the United States, this collection offers a choice selection of full-page color reproductions accompanied by detailed captions on the facing pages. Featured artists include J. C. Lyendecker, Howard Chandler Christy, James Montgomery Flagg, Gordon Grant, Harvey Dunn, Ludwig Hohlwein, Frank Brangwyn, and Theophile Steinlen.
