Film Posters of the Third Reich Film Posters of the Third Reich by William Gillespie and Joel Nelson
This book is the first-ever to reproduce in full color over 50 posters which are the rarest of the rare - those designed to promote the most infamous and notorious propaganda films produced by Dr Goebbels. Many of these posters have never been reproduced in color after 1945 until now, and many are the only examples known to exist. They are drawn from the private collections of the two authors after forty years of collecting.

Wake Up, America! Revolucion: Cuban Poster Art by Lincoln Cushing
The poster was the popular art form in Cuba following the Cuban Revolution, when the government sponsored some 10,000 public posters on a fascinating range of cultural, social, and political themes. Revolución, produced with unprecedented access to Cuban national archives, assembles nearly 150 of these powerful but little-seen works of popular art from the 1960s through the 1980s. With an introduction illuminating the rich social and artistic history of the posters, and rare biographical information on the artists themselves, this striking volume offers a window into the story of Cuba.
