French poster master Paul Colin believed that
successful posters had an immediate impact on a large number of people. His own
posters certainly did. The art in 100 Posters of Paul Colin represents some of
his finest works, and consists of both full-color and black-and-white images.
This collection includes three categories of posters. The first type of
artwork produced by Colin related to the performing arts, and focused on topics
such as theater, dance, music, and film. His second type of poster included both
those created to promote worthy causes and those designed to expose the inhumanity
of man. Thirdly, Colin created outstanding promotional posters to advertise products
and services. For each poster, author Jack Rennert includes extensive and insightful
notes that illuminate both the artwork and the time in which it was created. He
also includes information on the printer when it is available.
Rennert The Author,
has been dealing in posters for
over forty years During this time he has written a dozen monographs, arranged
museum tours, given lectures, and done television guest spots on the topic of
poster art. Rennert also established two successful companies: Posters Please,
Inc. and Poster Auctions International. At Poster Auctions International, the
world's first company to specialize exclusively in poster auctions, he became
the first specialized poster auctioneer. Mr. Rennert is the author of over twenty
books on both vintage and modern posters.
