Description: it harks back to Communist propaganda from the Soviet era. But there’s more to it than that. “It’s a direct take on a very famous Russian (Soviet) advert from 1924. The author is Alexander Rodchenko – renowned father of Russian graphic design.”
“It has no ideological or communist angle whatsoever. This is basically a commercial advert, promoting the Lengiz – Leningrad (now St Peterburgh) publishing house. It’s an instant classic of an era which is why I recognized it. ”
