Surprisingly well written accounts of presidential campaigns since 1828, with frame-worthy reproductions of political posters. Especially liked the minor-party representation: Shirley Chisholm, Henry A. Wallace ... even Pat Paulsen. From Andrew Jackson ("Protector & Defender of Beauty & Booty") to Barack Obama ("Hope") with many a colorful candidate (and poster) in between.

Nice reproduction of political posters through almost the entirety of presidential elections. Lots of third party candidates represented too, especially from the last 50-60 years. The back of each poster has interesting and informative commentary about the design and the elections, along with election results and other art (political cartoons, other posters, etc.).

Highly recommended. It's a fascinating look at the US's history of elections, but also shows the changes of graphic design over the 200 years.

I was intrigued, educated and entertained. Interestingly enough, it seems mud-slinging and bad policy has been around since the birth of this great nation.
