The one hundred posters of many USA presidential campaigns are well done, and worth framing for a historical office. Surprisingly both losers and third party posters are well represented. There is fascinating, eclectic data on each of the US presidential campaigns, along with smaller images of many more posters.

For a American History teacher who wants their student to feel the styles of the various periods with rotating images this would be an excellent investment. For an American History buff, this is a wonderful addition to the library.

This was a gift. He loved looking at every page. Perfect for a history enthusiast or political guru. This book will not disappoint.

This was exactly what I was looking for! I teach high school government and had a large ugly space to decorate in my classroom. The posters were super easy to tear out and easy to hang with magnetic coins!

Love this book. Bought for my niece who’s a history teacher.

This book makes a great coffee table book. It also comes with large, removable poters if you would want to post them on your wall. The information is laid out well with the electoral vote, popular vote, posters, and background info on the major parties and campaigns. It's a very interesting and fun book to read or just flip through.

A physically large book with a whole lot of fun information. As a history teacher and self proclaimed political junkie I loved it. Lots of good information on the 19th century Presidential races and candidates that I knew little about. It seems as if many of the same smarmy tactics we are "enjoying" today are really not that new at all. I guess that might be a good thing, or then again, maybe it isn't. Not an overwhelming book. I found very little, if any, political bias in the book. For those who enjoy history and political history at that, this book merits a few hours of your time. Fun posters with background descriptions pertaining to the subject matter of said posters. Given the fact that it includes all Presidential elections the authors can be forgiven for not using more examples of posters. Sad side note is that the book was printed in China, but unlike other Chinese printed books I have read, this one doesn't contain a boat load of bad editing. Take the time if this is your field of interest.

The Library of Congress has a long history of publishing important works in American history and culture, always on excellent paper and binding, and often, as in this wonderful example, in a format that can be easily and effectively framed.

The Library has a collection of over 100,000 of these posters, and one can criticize this relatively small sampling of 200 posters as not being representative, as being too political for one party or another, of missing a personally "essential" poster. But, as a beautiful overview of the art form, and as a historically accurate description of the campaign from which the posters have been drawn, this collection simply cannot be beat. A really nice touch are the side bar illustrations of other campaign materials that were used with, and sometimes in opposition to, the main poster.

A sample of the sort of text that accompanies these posters, this one published by the Clay forces against Jackson, shown as a king:

"In the early nineteenth century, many Americans still remembered firsthand the oppression of royal rule. That's why in this poster presidential candidate Henry Clay set out to paint the incumbent Andrew Jackson as a tyrant prone to letting his strong will run roughshod over the U.S. Constitution. Clay was certain that the image of a crowned, scepter-bearing Jackson standing in front of a throne would be like a bucket of cold water to voters. Instead, Jackson defeated Clay by a huge margin: Jackson won 219 electoral votes to Clay's 49 electoral votes."

This one accompanies a Lewis Cass poster:

"The Democrats promoted Lewis Cass as a distinguished politician with an extensive resume of public service, producing a campaign poster in which his portrait sat pompously at the center of a constellation of the eleven former presidents. Cartoonists thought less of Cass than he thought of himself, especially since his name provided serendipitous opportunities for wordplay featuring ass and gas."

A more recent one, with a cartoon like image of Robert Kennedy, resonates with this reviewer (a Eugene McCarthy supporter):

"Robert F. Kennedy made a late and controversial entrance into the Democratic race in March 1968, only four days after Eugene McCarthy nearly upset President Lyndon Johnson in the New Hampshire primary. Although Johnson and Kennedy had a testy relationship, Kennedy had not wanted to oppose the president. But when McCarthy's strong showing demonstrated that the party was not united behind Johnson, Kennedy made his move. Kennedy was embraced by young voters, as evidenced by the psychedelic campaign poster."

I'm sure readers will be able to find their own villains and heroes on these pages -- either for framing or for condemning -- all part of the great American election cycles.

A number of these posters have been collected on various websites; a particularly nice collection is at the website of WNYC in New York City. The Library of Congress also has an exhibit, and through its search engine allows one to find some of the 100,000 or so posters that aren't illustrated in this book; check the Prints and Photographs Reading Room.

If you have any interest in American history, this is a wonderful way to explore the entire 200 years of that culture.
