Up Against the Wall: International Poster design
This is more than another coffee table book. It takes a comprehensive look at poster design from an International perspective. The humble poster is showcased as the most accessible contemporary form of street communication. It is examined as a political tool, from the controversial to the aesthetically beautiful, as a reflection of contemporary thought, and, at its most simplistic a mix of text and image.
Since I've been workling on some posters it seemed a helpful inspiration and an excuse to buy a great book! It is well laid out and full of great colour spreads.
I got a great deal on it through an Amazon re-seller – RRP £29.95, I paid £18. Quite satisfying.
