Review “[I]t’s a fun book to flip through: colorful, informative, funny and thought-provoking. It’s perfect for political junkies, or for anyone interested in history.”—The Wichita Eagle

“This handsome, 11” x 14” collection includes more than 100 suitable-for-framing reproductions of vintage one-sheet posters throughout American history (from Andrew Jackson’s 1828 campaign against John Quincy Adams to Barack Obama’s iconic 2008 “Hope”), plus several culturally significant parodies, in an entertaining, informative overview about “the art” of getting out the vote.”—American Profile
