A.M. Cassandre, 1935. Poster for the Normandie's inaugural voyage is the earliest and rarest of a series that subsequently appeared with number of different texts. Normandie was the largest and fastest ship afloat at the time.<br />
<br />
The golden age of poster art has been captured in a sumptuous new book of Art Deco design from the 1920's and 30's.<br />
<br />
And ironically the stunning but throwaway designs now sell for tens of thousands of pounds as modern collectors appreciate the unique design's from a halcyon age.<br />

Author Willian Crouse has illustrated his book with over 300 posters from his own vast collection of art accumulated over the last 30 years.
