Originally published by a French company in 2008 this is a sumptuous look at the great days of the passenger liners that criss-crossed the world with posters from 1873 to 1962. The common element of the two hundred in the book is the art, either straight paintings or, from the mid-thirties onwards, a much more graphic style. Artists mostly chose to show these liners at three-quarter profiles from sea level making it much easier to suggest the power and strength of steel cutting through water.

I was interesting see that some liners were a mix of sail and steam, pages sixteen and seventeen show two posters from 1883 and what appear to be a sailing ship but is actually the Red Star 'Westernland' with two large funnels. To impress potential passengers Cunard posters added technical details about their ships, their 'Carmania' and 'Caronia' were 676 feet long and weigh in at 20,000 tons, the 'Campania' and 'Luciania' were 625 feet long, 12,950 tons with 30,000 horse power. Another Cunard poster from 1920 shows that artists could stretch reality to the limit, on page seventy-two the 'Mauritania' is so tall it breaks out of the poster edge.

There are some lovely posters from the thirties showing artists using a flat graphic style, reducing the shape and structure of liners to a sleek streamline appearance and with less copy in bigger type posters had a much more visual impact though some companies, like Union Castle, Shaw Savill or P&O, stuck to the old style of realistic paintings of their liners. None of the major shipping companies had logos so the obvious thing was to have a distinctive coloured funnel and there are three posters in particular, Cunard, Hamburg-America and United States Lines, where the main pictorial element are their funnels and they work beautifully.

Wonderful book. Nicely produced - crisp clear images on nice heavy stock. There are some great selections in this collection. They could easily be removed for framing if one was not adverse to destroying books. I've done it before but it always leaves me feeling a bit guilty. For my taste the compilers could have dispensed with the more contemporary examples and focused more on those posters produced before 1940. I wouldn't let that diminish their 5 star rating, however, as there is plenty enough here to please. A Collectors Club Publication - you're in good hands!

None of the major shipping companies had logos so the obvious thing was to have a distinctive colored funnel and there are three posters in particular, Cunard, Hamburg-America and United States Lines, where the main pictorial element are their funnels and they work beautifully.

The book's five chapters all start with an essay about the liners revealing interesting detail about the ships and their owners. Some of this information is quite fascinating, for example: the French Fabre Line owned the 11,885 ton 'Patria' which sailed between Marseilles, Naples and Palermo to New York in 1914 with 140 First class, 250 Second class and 1,850 Third class passengers (this is really cramming them in on a relatively small ship) compared with ultimate Atlantic crossing experience during the thirties on the 'Normandie' (82,799 tons) which carried 750 Cabin class, 625 Tourist class and 340 Third class passengers.

The book is a treat to look through, beautifully designed and printed on a quality matt art paper, the only thing missing is an Index. I doubt there will be better book about ocean liner posters.

HASH(0x9844ec84) von 5 Sternen SpeedReaders.info review 28. Dezember 2011
Von Speed Readers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As Cadringher rightly says in her Preface, the posters "recount artistic, cultural, social and industrial history" and it is with the artistic aspect that she begins the book by giving a brief history of the technology that made large-size posters possible: lithography, specifically chromolithography, more specifically the pioneering work of French artist Jules Chéret, "father of the modern poster."

Each chapter is introduced by 4-6 pages that give a good summary of the evolution of travel, the technology that made it possible, the economics that made it feasible, and specific ships/passages and lines. The text that introduces the various eras is rather short but here contains references to specific posters, and not just the ones in their respective chapters. Posters are reproduced in the main at full-page size and in very good quality on high-grade paper. A lot of book for the money!

HASH(0x98451f18) von 5 Sternen a gallery of outstanding ocean liner posters with historical text 13. Dezember 2011
Von Henry Berry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Like its companion volume on railway posters from the same publisher, this Ocean Liner Posters features outstanding posters in this area of transportation from their beginnings in the latter 1800s until the post-World War II decades when they died out. As with the fading out of the railway posters, ocean liner posters faded out from the growth of commercial air travel and the movement of advertising to TV and print media. But the demise of the ocean liner posters is a boon for collectors. Such posters now automatically have an antiquarian value kept up by scarcity, artistic quality and uniqueness, and continual interest; and the posters are one vein of the history of artistic styles and consumer interests as reflected in commercial and advertising art.

The ocean liner posters differ from the railway posters in that oceans and wharves do not offer the variations in background scenery as do the landscapes and destinations for the railway posters. Thus distinctive and striking ocean liner posters required more imagination on the part of an artist. Especially, the perspective on a particular ship makes the difference in the overall conception and effect of a poster. Front view, full and partial side views, stern view in some cases, above, below, or alongside, and angled views particularly forty-five degrees but others too are all bases for surrounding, complementary composition. There are a few posters where steam funnels along with flags and lettering achieve the desired effect. Unpredictable color, shadings, typestyles, and imagery ranging from dreamy to exotic to realistic make make each poster distinctive. One of the most striking posters is Cassandre's !935 "Normandie". Simple yet imposing yet elegant, it has become an icon of 20th-century graphic art. As notes on the "Poster Designers" say, "Cassandre...was without doubt the greatest poster designer of the twentieth century."

Artistic ideas first found in ocean liner posters are reflected in much of today's music concert posters, magazine advertising, cartoon and comic art, book covers, and design of consumer products. The variety of the pictured posters through the decades of their evolution with succinct introductions to the major periods offers an exceptional introduction along with an incomparable visual treat.

HASH(0x984530d8) von 5 Sternen SAILING ALONG 15. Juni 2012
Von D. Williams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The title "Ocean Liner Posters," by Gabriele Cadringher, starts falling short of adequately describing the book's interior comments just about the time the reader opens it.

Accompanying the advent of technology, dramatically changed in the last five decades is the manner in which information is conveyed. Glancing at some information, such as black symbols enscribed on white paper, individually doesn't convey much in the way of deep thought unless taken, or read as a whole. But each of those symbols, like these being read here, must be assembled and understood as cohesive thought to be effective.

As noted by many, though, a single image can convey far more information; the information growing exponentially with the complexity or richness of that image.

Seen in Cadringher's book are the former functional equivalents of today's music-pumpimg, scene-switching television commercial clips which beckon the viewer to high-seas adventure, only the former does it quietly and, certainly, more elegantly.

The artwork of the cruise-ship posters within "Ocean Liner Posters" is quite remarkable unto themselves and yet, as a whole, they also display artworks' transformation during the same period.

The book's reader is treated to a journey of a different sort -- from almost laughably simplistic to incredibly elaborate -- undertaken by some of the greatest artists who toiled at any easel during a time when sailing the ocean blue often was an excercise in quiet elegance, self-reflection and introspection as opposed to the almost non-stop hedonism of today.

From rich full-page poster reproductions to Cadringher's tales of how the artwork evolved, this is a book well worth acaquiring -- even should the purchaser not go beyond "looking at pictures."
