Leonetto Cappiello is the Father of the Modern Poster. And this is the largest, most authoritative collection of Cappiello’s work ever presented: 534 poster illustrations in full-color, many never before seen.
Detailed appraisals and annotations accompany each poster, as well as biographical information and an insight into Cappiello's graphic method. An additional 50 color illustrations that show the many other facets of Cappiello’s talents–from book and magazine illustrations, to paintings, maquettes, postcards and, most of all, his superb early caricatures. Today, more homes are decorated with Cappiello's posters than those of any other single poster artist in the world. This book goes a long way toward showing why.
