Book cover - Filmposters of the Russian Avant-Garde. TASCHEN, Susan Pack, California. Soviet advertising and propaganda posters, as well as those made for films, are extremely popular. They’re exhibited across the world and sold in leading art auctions. Avant-garde film experiments in Russia are connected with the names of film directors Dziga Vertov (especially his film, Man with a Movie Camera), Sergei Eisenstein, Alexander Dovzhenko, Lev Kuleshova and others. The poster artists experimented with the same avant-garde cinematic techniques as the brilliant filmmakers of the day.

Russian film posters of the 1920s and 1930s bear witness to the artistic creativity of the former Soviet Union in the years before Soviet Realism became the official art doctrine under Stalin. This book represents a survey of these works. Online Stores ▾. Audible Barnes & Noble Walmart eBooks Apple Books Google Play Abebooks Book Depository Alibris Indigo Better World Books IndieBound.

For a "graphics" book full of and all about visuals, I expected the book to be a lot bigger in size (should've checked details), also because one reviewer described it as a huge book. What that reviewer meant, come to find out, is that its super thick. True, it's a really cool book, but I was hoping it was more coffee-table style, as the images are incredibly vivid, engaging and graphically cool as hell all around.
Also, arrived promptly and perfectly in tact from seller.

If you're a graphic designer, you only need browse this excellent book for a moment or two to realize that Russian artists in the 1920's and 30's knew more about how to make a great poster than any American has ever known before or since.

Every poster designer and film buff loves American designer Saul Bass and I'm no exception, but Bass borrowed a lot from these early Russian designers like Rodchenko, and its no wonder--they were an incredible wellspring of creativity. Open any single page in this collection and you'll find a hundred great ideas regarding use of color, perspective, and mixing photography with illustration. Every designer should have this book at hand for reference. Unfortunately many of these early films have been lost or destroyed over time, but one wonders if the best part hasn't been saved--these glorious posters. I can't say enough good things about this book.

I'm not a collector of Russian/Soviet film posters, so all the liner notes could be complete bullocks, but the book is brilliantly large and appears to really want to give the straight story (for instance it gives the title that the artists gave the posters not the movie title associated w/ it). I've only seen a few of the movies it covers so I bought it solely for the art. If you're a fan of the clean Bauhaus style this book is for you.
