POSTERS OF THE WPA by Christoper Denoon chronicles a fascinating and hitherto unknown development of American graphic design that took place between 1935 and 1943, years darkened by the Great Depression and World War II.  In this remarkable 8-year period, a program sponsored by the Works Process Administration (WPA) printed two million posters from thirty-five thousand designs.  

POSTERS OF THE WPA looks at the artistic, social and political movements of the era and correlates these to the posters contained in this book.  The change and upheaval that brought about artistic innovation and technical advancement in posters production are chronicled in 280 vivid color reproductions.
