About this title

Synopsis:

Back in the USSR: 250 film posters capture the cultural energy of the pre-Stalin era

At the intersection of the visual, graphic, and cinematic arts, film posters are a unique and thrilling record of aparticular cultural Zeitgeist. This book brings together 250 posters from the pre-Stalin Soviet Union of the 1920s and 1930s to explore theenergy and invention of this period, before Soviet Realism became the official art doctrine.

Drawn from the private collection of connoisseur Susan Pack, the selection includes the work of27 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 morestark, striking, even challenging images, often marked by unusual angles, dynamic compositions, and startling close-ups.
