Modern Dog: 20 Years of Poster Art Reviews
A very nice collection of various poster art styles and designs. It is very well put together and features some very talented designers that created posters ranging from social issue/events to concerts. Some excellent examples of poster art.
I love Modern Dog's work, a great book full of their design over the decades.
Great samples of poster art, but many of the images are small. Aside from the introductory essay, the book is thin on copy. On the other hand, most of the posters selected speak well for themselves. I bought Modern Dog along with
Thanks! Modern Dog is such a great graphic design firm, so I just had to have this book to add to my design library. It does not disappoint.
I got this as a gift for my daughter who is in college for graphic design. Her professor recommended it. She is very happy with it and feels it will be a go-to book in career.
For full disclosure, i know that as a graphic designer and a student under Mike Strassburger, it may seem that i am biased -- BUT i can say with all honesty, that i am definitely not. I highly recommend this book, not only because of the original ideas the people behind Modern Dog come up with are inspiring, but also because their passion and ingenuity comes through in fantastic harmony. Their work can be kitchy when it needs to be or it can be completely hand-crafted, and either way the end result is clean and with purpose. Their posters are so fun to look at and their product packaging is always hilarious. Get this book.
