Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This massive book of Soviet propaganda posters, many rare and never before published, is at once a revealing historical document and a sublime example of graphic art at its best. Dating from 1917 to the beginning of the Cold War, the posters in this book feature the work of such major Russian ground-breaking avant-garde designers as El Lissitzky and Alexander Rodchenko as well as extraordinary works by anonymous artists. Presented in full color, the 250 posters gathered here range in themes from warnings about the dangers of alcohol abuse and the creeping Nazi menace to illustrations of utopian harmony and the Soviet industrial machine.

Synopsis:

Seit dem Ende des Kalten Krieges und dem Fall der Berliner Mauer ist die sowjetische Propaganda-Kunst als faszinierende Inspirationsquelle von Designern und Künstlern entdeckt worden. Die umfangreiche Plakat-Sammlung des russischen Kunstsammlers Sergo Grigorian umspannt den Zeitraum von 1917 bis zum Kalten Krieg und wird nun erstmals in Buchform präsentiert.
