How Posters Work collects 125 of the Cooper Hewitt’s permanent pieces to examine how the design principles employed in film advertisements, album artwork, book covers and propaganda create a visual communication. From John Lennon and Rosemary’s Baby, to Kafka and Midnight Cowboy, the exhibit – on through early 2016 – is truly a time capsule of the ever-evolving graphic design trends utilized in advertising over the last century. Check out a few examples of the works on view in the gallery below.
