Film Posters of the Russian Avant-Garde - Hardcover


$40.00



“The designs featured in this book have had a lasting influence on graphic design and remain some of the most memorable film posters of all time.” -Creative Review, London

  • At the vivid intersection of cinematic and graphic design history, this book gathers 250 film posters from 1920s and 1930s Russia to explore a world of innovative, revolutionary aesthetics.
  • Brimming with bold colours, dramatic angles, and eye-catching typography, these startling designs bear witness to the experimental avant-garde of the pre-Stalin era.
  • 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 and aesthetic, as much as they collectively eschew the glamour of Hollywood for more stark, striking, even challenging images, often marked by unusual angles, dynamic compositions, and startling close-ups.
