The tumultuous events of the Russian Revolution were matched by dramatic shifts in graphic art and design that continue to influence our visual landscape. David King, an expert on Soviet art and an internationally acclaimed graphic designer, selected the more than 165 posters reproduced here from his own unparalleled collection. Constructivist posters, socialist advertising, 1920s film posters, classic photomontage, the heroic posters of the Great Patriotic War, biting political satire, and the cult of personality of the Stalin years are all represented, as are artists such as Alexander Rodchenko, El Lissitzky, Gustav Klutsis, Dimitri Moor, Viktor Deni, and Nina Vatolina. King sets the posters in context and profiles the art directors and creative directors whose vision played such a vital role in creating these striking works.
David King is the author of The Commissar Vanishes: The Falsification of Photographs and Art in Stalin's Russia (1997) and Red Star Over Russia: A Visual History of the Soviet Union from 1917 to the Death of Stalin (2010). He was art editor of The Sunday Times between 1965 and 1975 and is the owner of one of the world's pre-eminent collection of Russian artefacts.
Praise for Red Star Over Russia: 'A copy of this book should be in every public library, in every secondary school and in the hands of anyone who aspires to understand what has made Russia the state it is today... Buy one to keep and one to give away.' - Literary Review
