Every year the association 100 Beste Plakate e. V. presents awards to honour the most innovative and groundbreaking poster designs from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The yearbook has long been the go-to source in poster design for graphic artists, designers, and advertisers. While the traditional printed poster is still regarded as the most challenging genre in the graphic arts, it is increasingly coming under the influence of digital technology. For this reason, the 2018 yearbook explores the status of posters amid the wide variety of media and forms of expression available to clients and designers. What relevance do posters still have in our day and age? Are they no more than decorative items for cultural institutions, festivals, and academic events? Or do they still serve their traditional purpose of influencing societal discourse and flagging up trends in lifestyle, fashion, politics, aesthetics, and the corporate world? This year's edition was designed by the Zurich design studio Hi. It was printed on affiche paper, and the folds of the printed signatures were cut only on two sides similar to classical Japanese binding, inviting readers to make an effort to 'open up' the book. Text in English and German.

The lowly placard, a quick and efficient device used to spread news or advertise goods, ascended to the level of a respected art form in the late 1800's in France. The `art poster' was born at the convergence of new aesthetic movements, technological advances and societal changes. Fine artists were swayed from their lofty perches to join the practical arts, influenced by the egalitarian spirit of the Arts and Crafts movement. Artist Jules Cheret, Father of the Modern Poster, perfected a means of high-quality printing that produced large, colour saturated images. An emerging middle class was the ready target for the consumption of newly manufactured goods, literary publications, theatrical events and leisure time entertainment. A sea of gorgeous images added a joie de vivre to everyday life, introducing a period of French life now know as the Belle Epoque. These posters, although ephemeral in intent, have been collected and continually reproduced over the subsequent decades, a testament to their timeless beauty and emotional depth. This book chronicles the influence of the art poster in France and its rapid spread across Europe and United States and offers to the readers an artist's poster tour of the development of the art poster.
