Propaganda or Art

Once again the United States has embarked on another seemingly endless Presidential Campaign. As electoral advertizing moves in to topgear we can expect to see all manner of campaign commercials, print art and propaganda. At least we can all enjoy the time-honored tradition of the campaign poster.

Just in time for for the 2012 debacle there’s a fascinating new book out titled Presidential Campaign Posters (QuirkBooks) that chronicles two centuries of Presidential Campaigns with artwork from the Library of Congress. The bok contains 100 ready-to-frame posters that are bound with microperforated edges  for easy removal. Now you can have your very own framed Gerald Ford as the Fonz poster or one of Shepard Faiey’s iconic Hope posters.
