Posters are present in almost every area of our lives: glossily produced hoardings for consumer goods, public health campaigns, election propaganda and images of bands Blu-Tacked to bedroom walls. Drawing on the extensive collections of the V&A, this lavishly illustrated, stylishly designed book charts the development of the poster in Britain since 1945 in the hands of graphic designers, artists and advertising agencies, and looks at how it has kept pace with technological change.
