Poster by Alexey Bordovitch, 1929, showing Cunard Line's Mauretania which inaugurated Cunard's service out of Southampton and was then used as a troopship during the Gallipoli campaign and a hospital ship for those injured in the battle. <br />

The golden age of poster art has been captured in a sumptuous new book of Art Deco design from the 1920's and 30's.<br />
<br />
And ironically the stunning but throwaway designs now sell for tens of thousands of pounds as modern collectors appreciate the unique design's from a halcyon age.<br />

Author Willian Crouse has illustrated his book with over 300 posters from his own vast collection of art accumulated over the last 30 years.
