Description: This large format book includes over 35 theatrical posters, all but five of which were commissioned by the Lincoln Center Theater, New York. Full-page reproductions of each poster are accompanied by reference photos, sketches, and alternate versions, with an accompanying text describing a central aspect of the poster's creation. In some cases, the text focuses on how the artist found the visual metaphor for the play; in others, the graphic development of the poster is discussed. For the most part, however, the artist tells the stories of the people surrounding each production - playwrights, directors, actors, producers - and how the artist's interaction with them affected the final version of the poster. Being the Broadway theater, colorful personalities appear and enliven these accounts: Tom Stoppard, Wole Soyinka, Gregg Moser, John Guare, James Lapine, Liv Ullman, Jerry Zacks, Patty Lupone, Mike Nichols, and Wendy Wasserstein are among them.

As well as surveying an extraordinary body of art work by one of America's most celebrated illustrators, this book offers a unique insight into the contemporary American theater.
