Abstract:

"Drawing on the V&A's wide-ranging poster collection, this book maps how the poster has evolved in Britain since 1945 in the hands of graphic designers and fine artists, advertising agencies and counter-cultural groups.The range spans 'Keep Britain Tidy' campaigns, lavishly produced Benson & Hedges billboards, punk rock posters, hand-printed indictments of politicians and public art projects on the Underground. Defying regular predictions of its demise, the poster in Britain has adapted itself within a changing technological environment. It has absorbed new directions in art and design and has met unfolding social and commercial challenges."--Page 2 of cover.
