Color reproductions, tipped in, of 72 posters from the collection of the Folkwang Schule fur Gestaltung in Essen, preceded by fanfare for la vie Boheme and remarks on some of the artists (preeminently Cheret, Lautrec, Mucha, Steinlen) and accompanied by similarly casual observations. The 72 are arranged in no discernible order, not even by artist, and the text imposes no sequence; so anarchic is it, in fact, that Villon is "asked to explain why he had changed his name" without noting that he had or what it was. There are only three Lautrecs, and many of the unfamiliar examples are hardly worth knowing except to specialists. Like the posters, decorative; unlike the posters, cumbersome and costly.
