Heralding the call to disarmament, the demand for human rights, the plight of refugees, and countless other civic and humanitarian causes, posters have been at forefront of the United Nations's initiatives and campaigns. The first UN posters had a simple message, boldly displaying the UN name in six languages and establishing an identity for the world body using symbols that spokes to the for peace. As its mission broadened in scope and the number of its agencies grew, the UN continued to adress the world through the medium of posters, creating bold design that were recognized worldwide for their artful composition and skillful rendering.
Some UN posters were adapted from works by well-known artist, notably the Norman Rockwell mosaic at the UN's New York head-quarters, the Pablo Picasso painting The Fall of Icarus, and Hans Erni's painting Man in Flight. Other outstanding contributions have included work by Peter Max, Victor Vasarely, and Robert Rauschenberg. Rauschenberg whose neo-dada style bridged abstract expressionism and pop art, created seven UN posters on themes such as the environtment, apartheid, habitat, and protection of cultural property.
Posters tell the story of the UN's endeavors over the last half-century with striking effect and sensitivity. This collection presents more than one hundred fifty of the finest examples of UN graphic art ever produced; it is the first to bring the rich variety of UN posters together in a single volume. Drawing on UN sources worldwide, this book includes rare specimens from the organization'a early days- including two posters produced by the UN's predecessor organization, the League of Nations- and prizewinners from various poster competitions. Also included are artist biographies and preface by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
