"This is the must-have book for anyone with an interest in posters and the period. Wonderful pictures and informative text. a personal favorite, from my own extensive poster library." Greg Yaneff

The Belle Epoque--France's "beautiful era" that lasted from the 1890s to the beginning of World War I--was the golden era of posters, when many of the world's classic designs were produced. The excitement of this time is brought to life in this lavish collection of more than 200 full-color posters--each completely annotated--that adorned Paris when artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec walked its streets.

The posters, culled from one of the best private collections in the world, include the works of Toulouse-Lautrec, Mucha, Steinlen, Cappiello, Cheret, Livemont, and other top posterists of the day. Jack Rennert's lengthy, well-researched introduction illustrates the flavor of this magnificent era and explains interesting production aspects of the lithographic art that produced these masterpieces. Posters of the Belle Epoque is a must-have for the serious poster collector.
