This second edition of New Masters of Poster Design features the best poster designers currently working all over the world. This book brings back a handmade aesthetic that was really never lost, but is celebrating a resurgence among designers who are creating limited-edition prints and pieces for themselves and others that become keepsakes or pieces of art vs. the mass-generated designs we've all become accustomed to—and you won't see this collection of posters anywhere else. Strong visuals accompanied by captions and profiles capture the essence of these collectible prints.
