And YES, one more time I would like to boast – just a little bit – about my new book, Soviet Posters Pull-Out Edition, published last autumn at Prestel, UK. This large-format book of Soviet propaganda posters allows the reader to remove individual posters and is at once a revealing historical document and a sublime example of graphic art at its best. Dating from 1917 to the end of the Cold War, the posters in this book feature the work of groundbreaking Russian artists such as El Lissitzky and Alexander Rodchenko, alongside extraordinary works by their contemporaries. Presented in full color, printed on heavy paper, and in a large-format, the posters gathered here represent the pinnacle of Russian avant-garde design from the 20th century. They range in theme from the dangers of alcohol abuse and the creeping Nazi menace, to illustrations of utopian harmony and the Soviet industrial machine. A special feature of this book allows for the removal of the posters, which have been designed to fit standard frame sizes. A brief introduction offers a chronological overview of the period that produced such eloquent art, which has long been a major source of inspiration to artists and designers. This book is the second joint work with Sergro Grigorian, the owner of one of the largest Soviet Poster collections in the world. Our first book, Soviet Posters: The Sergo Grigorian Collection, was published in May 2007, also at Prestel UK.
