Reviews - What do customers think about Poster-Art: Innovation in Poster Design?
Visually Excellent! Jul 11, 2008
I got this book to give me some more ideas in poster design and it's fantastic! Some works are really arty and don't really communicate the fundamentals of who, when and where, clearly however, there are a great many examples in here of excellent poster design concepts and artwork. Overall if you're simply looking for a whole bunch of different visual idea's then this book is great!
"Search Inside" wow..you can read the legalize Jun 14, 2008
I don't know anything about this book. I gave it 5 stars cuz the other review gave it 5 stars and I don't want to change it. I'm just peeved at the "Look Inside"(TM) feature that lets you explore...the index, the copyright info, the front and back covers, and a chapter start. No art, no text. I don't want to buy this just based on that. Sorry.
great May 30, 2007
I think its a great book for some fresh Ideas. It shows many styles as well as designers from all over the country. Every subject matter and every other company can be seen in this book. I like the short paragraphs about each poster. Not too much text, more images. GREAT
