Arts et Métiers Graphiques was a deluxe magazine that covered all graphic media - prints, books, posters, advertising and photography. "Until the Second World War forced the magazine to cease production, Arts et Métiers Graphiques was one of the highest standards for graphic arts magazines of its time" (http://amgweb.rit.edu/introduction.htm). From a poster perspective, the magazine provides innumerable reproductions (including posters that have never surfaced on the market) and articles about the best poster artists of the era. An indispensable reference for poster collectors and aficionados of graphic design.
