Dating from 1917 to the end of the Cold War, the posters in this book feature the work of ground breaking Russian artists such as El Lissitzky and Alexander Rodchenko, alongside extraordinary works by their contemporaries. Presented in full colour, printed on heavy paper, and in a large-format, theposters gathered here represent the pinnacle of Russian avant garde design from the 20th century. They range in theme from the dangers of alcohol abuse and the creeping Nazi menace, to illustrations of utopian harmony and the Soviet industrial machine. A special feature of this book allows for the removal of the posters, which have been designed to fit standard frame sizes. A brief introduction offers a chronological overview of the period that produced such eloquent art, which has long been a major source of inspiration to artists and designers. AUTHOR: Sergo Grigorian has been collecting posters from the Soviet period for a decade. He lives in Moscow and London. Maria Lafont is the author of Pillaging Cambodia: Illicit Traffic of Khmer Art. Born in Moscow, she now lives in Courbevoie, France. ***THIS TITLE HAS DETACHABLE POSTERS*** 23 posters
