Compiled, designed andedited by W.H. Allner, this 1951 issue of the INTERNATIONAL POSTER ANNUAL maintains the high standards of layout and production set by its predecessors. It is the most comprehensive survey of poster art throughout the world and constitutes a new, useful and stimulating reference book for artists, designers, art directors, advertising managers, art teachers, art students, printers, and everyone concerned with the visual projection of ideas.
