Film Posters of the Russian Avant-Garde

Availability: In stock

Combining visual arts, graphic design, and cinema, film posters are a unique and thrilling record of a particular cultural Zeitgeist. This book brings together 250 posters from the Soviet Union of the 1920s and early 1930s to explore a world of innovative, experimental avant-garde aesthetics. Drawn from the private collection of connoisseur Susan Pack, the selection includes the work of 27 different artists. From bold figuration to architectural elements, each artist displays a distinct style, as they collectively eschew the glamour of Hollywood for more stark, striking, even challenging images.

Written by Susan Pack. Published by Taschen in 2022. Hardcover, measures 13.7 x 10.6 inches, 320 pages. ISBN 9783836589529
