Clark, T. Art and Propaganda London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1997

Aimed largely at the undergraduate market (unfortunately un-referenced), the book beings with a brief discussion of the connotations of the word ‘propaganda’: “For some ‘propaganda art’ is a contradiction in terms: ‘propaganda’ suggests government-sponsored censorship, intimidation and deception, while ‘art’ implies the pursuit of beauty, truth and freedom.” Clark argues against this negative and unbalanced view, examining the complex relationship between art and politics, demonstrating how works of art can have a political purpose, and Continue Reading →

Cantwell, J.D. Images of War: British Poster 1939-45 London: HMSO, 1989

The decisions were made by a wide range of people working for some of the most prolific current British advertising agencies. Apparently a lot of time was required to produce a list of the ‘100 best’, but of particular interest to me, studying for a PhD in British Continue Reading →
