Geschichte des Plakates = Histoire de l'affiche = History of the poster by Josef Müller-Brockmann( Book )

24 editions published between 1971 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Until today the poster has lost nothing either of its actuality or its effective power. This book defines the nature of the poster and indicates the laws of designing which determine form, colour and composition. The four main lines of development, the illustrative, objective-informative, constructive and experimental poster, are demonstrated by means of 300 posters. The selection concentrates on those examples which, by the conception of their design, have influenced the stylistic development of the poster."--Jacket

The new 'Poster Collection 25' book from Lars Müller underlines how Josef Müller-Brockmann's designs left a lasting mark on Swiss visual communication from the 1950s onward. His posters demonstrate how a sober, formally reduced language works best for conveying a universal, timeless message. Poster campaigns for longtime clients such as the Tonhalle concert hall in Zürich or the Automobile Club of Switzerland follow strict functional criteria-and yet exhibit a variety of design solutions and exciting, dynamic compositions. This book presents selected posters by Müller-Brockmann and places them in the context of their own time while also examining the validity of his solutions from today's point of view
