Das Moderne Plakat (The Modern Poster)
Printed in Dresden by Verlag von Gerhard Kuhtmann in
52 lithograph plates including Lautrec, Steinlen, Beggarstaff,
Mucha, and others.
A truly wonderful printing of poster design, with many not
found in any other other format today.
By the end of the 19th century, during an era known as the
Belle Époque, the standing of the poster
as a serious artform was raised even further, with the publication
of the ‘Maîtres de l’Affiche’
(Masters of the Poster) series and Das
Moderne Plakat (The Modern Poster)
both of which
not only enjoyed commercial success among art collectors,
but are now seen as important historical publications,
as many of the posters cannot be found today in any other
