100 Posters That Changed The World
Classic posters from the last 300 years and the stories behind them.
Posters have always been designed to seek an immediate response. From the time when paper was first affordable, the poster has been used to provoke a direct reaction, whether a public appeal, a legal threat, a call to arms, or the offer of entertainment. Newspapers might have the advantage of ubiquity in spreading
the word, but a poster could be tightly targeted by its location.
