it was amazing
Read from October 15 to 18, 2011

First Josef Müller-Brockmann that i have read & first graphic design-related book i have read as well. I hope to read more. "History of the Poster" was the only Josef Müller-Brockmann available at the Library, so i checked it out although i really would like to buy this book and consult it for future reference.

I am graphic design (& Art...) n00b but i thought "History of the Poster" was very informative & didactic, showing examples of the evolution of Poster Design through-out historie & demonstrating the different types of poster styles. It was refreshing to see this more from a graphic design view than a Marketing or Brand perspective. "History of the Poster" also promoted me to further investigate these styles/forms/movements more in depth. Even if one does not have a passing interest in graphic design "History of the Poster" is still worth just thumbing thru or owning as a coffeetablebook.
