Editorial Reviews

Review

“[I]t’s a fun book to flip through: colorful, informative, funny and thought-provoking. It’s perfect for political junkies, or for anyone interested in history.”—The Wichita Eagle

“This handsome, 11” x 14” collection includes more than 100 suitable-for-framing reproductions of vintage one-sheet posters throughout American history (from Andrew Jackson’s 1828 campaign against John Quincy Adams to Barack Obama’s iconic 2008 “Hope”), plus several culturally significant parodies, in an entertaining, informative overview about “the art” of getting out the vote.”—American Profile

These posters provide a great view of the history of American presidential campaigns. I particularly liked the way that minor candidates like Ross Perot, Socialist candidate Eugene V. Debs, and even comedian Pat Paulsen's posters are included.

This book makes a great coffee table book. It also comes with large, removable poters if you would want to post them on your wall. The information is laid out well with the electoral vote, popular vote, posters, and background info on the major parties and campaigns. It's a very interesting and fun book to read or just flip through.

Format: Paperback
A physically large book with a whole lot of fun information. As a history teacher and self proclaimed political junkie I loved it. Lots of good information on the 19th century Presidential races and candidates that I knew little about. It seems as if many of the same smarmy tactics we are "enjoying" today are really not that new at all. I guess that might be a good thing, or then again, maybe it isn't. Not an overwhelming book. I found very little, if any, political bias in the book. For those who enjoy history and political history at that, this book merits a few hours of your time. Fun posters with background descriptions pertaining to the subject matter of said posters. Given the fact that it includes all Presidential elections the authors can be forgiven for not using more examples of posters. Sad side note is that the book was printed in China, but unlike other Chinese printed books I have read, this one doesn't contain a boat load of bad editing. Take the time if this is your field of interest.

I bought this book as a reference for my graphic design classes and was not disappointed. It is quite large in size and full color throughout. The pull out posters are a bonus. Well documented and illustrated. A great book for research or just to look at.
