Description:

New, no markings. 636 pages with profuse ills. The Soviet Union was unique in its dynamic use of the illustrated book as a means of propaganda. Through the form of the book, the USSR articulated its utopian (and eventually totalitarian) ideologies and expressed its absolute power through avant-garde writing and radical graphic design that was in full flower during the 1920s and 1930s. No other country or political system advanced its cause by attracting and employing acclaimed members of the avant-garde. Among them were writers such as Semion Kirsanov, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Ilya Selvinsky, Sergei Tretyakov and Kornely Zelinsky; artist designers such as Gustav Klutsis, Valentina Kulagina, El Lissitzky, Sergei Senkin, Varvara Stepanova, Solomon Telingater and Nikolai Troshin; and photographers such as Dmitry Debabov, Vladimir Griuntal, Boris Ignatovich, Alexander Khlebnikov, Yeleazar Langman, Alexander Rodchenko and Georgy Petrusov, not to mention many of the best printing plants and bookbinders. Gorgeously produced, edited and designed, The Soviet Photobook 1920-1941 presents 160 of the most stunning and elaborately produced photobooks from this period and includes more than 400 additional reference illustrations. The book also provides short biographies of the photobook contributors, some of whom are presented for the first time Size: 10.5 x 11.5 Inches. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: The Soviet Union was unique in its dynamic use of the illustrated book as a means of propaganda. Through the form of the book, the USSR articulated its utopian (and eventually totalitarian) ideologies and expressed its absolute power through avant-garde writing and radical graphic design that was in full flower during the 1920s and 1930s.
No other country or political system advanced its cause by attracting and employing acclaimed members of the avant-garde. Among them were writers such as Semion Kirsanov, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Ilya Selvinsky, Sergei Tretyakov and Kornely Zelinsky; artist designers such as Gustav Klutsis, Valentina Kulagina, El Lissitzky, Sergei Senkin, Varvara Stepanova, Solomon Telingater and Nikolai Troshin; and photographers such as Dmitry Debabov, Vladimir Griuntal, Boris Ignatovich, Alexander Khlebnikov, Yeleazar Langman, Alexander Rodchenko and Georgy Petrusov, not to mention many of the best printing plants and bookbinders.

The book also provides short biographies of the photobook contributors, some of whom are presented for the first time.

Review: With this amazing publication, English-language readers are offered a glimpse into a rarely seen moment of history through the selection and reproduction of approximately 160 Soviet photobooks... Colossal in size and beautifully illustrated, and a fascinating read. (S. M. Quimby CHOICE)

Chock full of a dizzying number of images on its 600+ pages.... The book's design reflects its subject matter well and includes three pages of index and an extensive glossary of those involved with the creation of or published in the books. I'll be looking at this for years. (Alyssa Coppelman Vantage)

A wonderful treasure-trove in which Karasik and Heiting present, in great detail, 160 of the very best Soviet photobooks from this most radical period of design and photography. (Kraszna-Krausz Best Photography Book Award Shortlist, 2016)

Students of history will find it a fascinating and heartbreaking reminder of yesterday. Students of photography and design will find it a sobering and provocative look at the kind of visual communication that is still with us today. (Pat Padua Spectrum Culture)

gorgeous to look at with an authority to match. (Colin Pantall Bint Photobooks)
