All the posters so strikingly illustrated in this book are from the collection of the Autry National Center, the Western poster holdings of which include more than 100 created in Poland--the largest such collection outside of Poland. Western Amerykanski represents the culmination of several years of devoted collecting and research of Polish poster art created specifically to advertise American Westerns.

Edited by Kevin Mulroy, Ph.D., previous director of the Institute for the Study of the American West, the lavishly illustrated, 228-page book includes important essays by Edward Buscombe, former head of publications at the British Film Institute; Frank Fox, a former professor of Eastern European history and expert on Polish poster art; Mariusz Knorowski, former curator of the Polish Poster Museum in Wilanow; and translator Aneta Zebala, a paintings conservator in Santa Monica, California.
