This is a survey of the wide range of painted ceramics made in Leningrad (St. Petersburg) following the 1917 Revolution. Combining avant-garde decoration with revolutionary exhortations, the ceramics were intended to carry Bolshevik propaganda far and wide in a campaign to woo the masses. Today, these "agitceramics" are seen both as historical documents and collectible decorative pieces in their own right. With over 200 illustrations and complete with historical introduction, expert analysis and informative captions, this book is for collectors and non-collectors alike.
