Abstract:

"Cuban graphistos heightened the island's appeal by creating a unique visual style that combined elements of art nouveau, art deco, European modernism, and Vegas-style kitsch with a distinctly Cuban sensibility. The first book of its kind, Cuba Style reproduces a treasure trove of vintage graphics from the 1920s to the revolution. Culled from period posters, magazines, advertisements, tourist brochures, postcards, product designs, and packaging, the images collected here by Vicki Gold Levi and Steven Heller create a visual history of Cuba's golden age as a wellspring of capitalist extravagance and capture the spirit of the now-lost popular culture of the island nation."--Jacket.
