About this title


Currently out of print, this book details a complete and colorful history of the propaganda poster. Propaganda art - persuasion through visual means - is as old as man. In PROP ART, Gary Yanker examines the recent political poster as a vehicle for conveying the propaganda message. Posters, which can be duplicated on a vast scale or quickly and crudely made by hand, are the cheapest medium for the dissemination of ideas. National governments, political parties, pressure groups of all persuasions, rely on posters for much of their propaganda. Today, thanks largely to the highly visible efforts of students around the world - notably in France, Czechoslovakia, Mexico and the United States - posters have become more widespread than ever. As "cult" objects and as purely decorative designs they appear as frequently in living rooms as on billboards, fostering a new "poster consciousness."
