Film Posters of the RUSSIAN AVANT-GARDE (HC)
Susan Pack

Hardcover 10x13, 320pg, Taschen, 1995. As new in shrinkwrap.

This is a first class coffee-table art book on Russian film posters of the '20s and '30s. With the same influences of Modernism, Art Deco, and super experimentation, these are as fascinating as the rarest and best U.S. posters...perhaps even more so. These bear unique witness to the artistic creativity of the former Soviet Union in the years before Soviet Realism became the official art doctrine under Stalin. The graphic artists of the Russian avant-garde eschewed the glamour of the Hollywood image. Elements such as close-ups and unusual angles lend these posters a powerful dynamism as compelling as the films themselves. A sweeping survey of profoundly imaginative works with 250 film posters by 27 artists.
