Description
This book features over 165 beautifully reproduced posters by both famous and unknown designers and is written by a leading expert and best-selling author on Soviet art. It reveals the process behind the commissioning and art direction of Soviet poster campaigns

Russian Revolutionary Posters tells the story of the development of the Soviet poster, from the revolutionary period through to the death of Stalin, revealing the way in which tumultuous events within the Soviet Union were matched by equally dramatic shifts in graphic art and design.

Written and designed by David King, one of the world’s foremost experts on Soviet art and himself an internationally acclaimed graphic designer, the publication features posters drawn from his unparalleled collection, well known to visitors to Tate Modern in London. Arranged chronologically, captions accompany each poster, explaining the historical and artistic context in which it was produced. The great names of Soviet poster design, including Alexander Rodchenko, El Lissitsky, Gustav Klutsis, Dimitri Moor, Viktor Demi and Nina Vatolina, all feature. However, some of the most arresting posters reproduced were created anonymously or by scarcely known artists whose work will be a revelation to many.

King takes us behind the scenes, explaining the process involved in the commissioning of the posters and the key figures who coordinated poster campaigns, providing personal histories of the art directors and creative directors whose vision played such a vital role in soviet poster design. With an insightful introduction and over 165 beautifully reproduced images, some of which have never been seen before, this beautifully produced but affordable book will be the definitive one on the subject for many years to come.""
