Historically, the American political poster has been sorely neglected as an art form and has played a minor cultural role, despite its effectiveness in conveying a political message to millions of voters often through the skillful use of visual communication. Sign of the Times, which features 50 posters from the nineteenth through the twenty-first century, has made every effort to bring the alluring, eye-popping political graphics to the forefront and positions the “great American political poster” as art.
