Political posters in Central and Eastern Europe, 1945-95: signs of the times
Manchester University Press, 1999 - Antiques & Collectibles - 227 pages
The political poster was one of the most widely discredited and closely policed aspects of cultural life in the former communist bloc. The poster's history is a story of aesthetic, political and finally, national liberation. This comprehensively illustrated comparative analysis of political poster design--drawn from major collections in Belorussia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, and the Ukraine--exemplifies the aesthetic diversity of the region under communist rule.
