Prop Art - Gary Yanker

Gary Yanker collected propaganda posters from the mid 1960s onwards and this collection of his posters is one of the best books if you're a fan of the genre. A massive tome, this book features 1,000 mostly black and white images of protest and propaganda posters from all over the world. Some classic Cuban posters are featured.

Gary is an obsessive collector - his short bio in the book mentions that he corresponded with over 500 agencies around the world to ask them for posters. In 1975 Gary donated all his posters to the Library of Congress. This is a great book for poster fans.
