About this title

Synopsis:

Briefly describes the history of the WPA Federal Art Project, explains the silk skreen process, and shows a variety of FPA posters promoting health, travel, the theater, and the war effort

From Library Journal:

Graphic artists of the Works Progress Administration produced thousands of bold, brightly colored, astutely modern posters. These WPA posters promoted health; encouraged vacationing in America; advertised art exhibits, concerts, and plays; and attacked America's World War II enemies. In Posters of the WPA , DeNoon makes the first serious attempt to present the neglected history of WPA posters. This informative book includes essays by Anthony Velonis and Richard Floethe and ends with color portfolios of posters by Velonis, Floethe, Bock, Halls, Milhous, and others. A welcome addition to the history of graphic design in the United States. Douglas G. Campbell, Warner Pacific Coll., Portland, Ore.
