The time period between the two World Wars was a golden age of graphic design, an era when posters were a true art form. William Crouse has compiled over 300 beautiful examples in his new book, The Art Deco Posters: Rare and Iconic ($65). The coffee table book takes us on a veritable journey across the world to an era when international travel, leisure time, and expendable income were the name of the game. If we had a time machine, we would be tempted to go there immediately! Below, a few of our favorites from the just-released tome.
