Polonskii, Vyacheslav

Moscow: Gosizdat, 1925.

Folio, edition of 3,000 with original printed pictorial boards. Photographically illustrated study of Russian Revolutionary poster design with 191 illustrations and 62 full color plates that are reproductions of the posters. With illustrations of work by Polonskii, Mayakovsky, Melnikov, Moor, Tcheremnich, and Lebedev, among others. Includes a catalogue of over 850 posters designed between 1912-1925. The posters illustrate the spirit of change during the revolutionary movement in Russia and they appeal for people to unite under Lenin by advertising and promoting his post revolutionary reforms. The styles of the posters vary depending on the artist, and as such this folio also presents a fantastic survey of the Russian avant-garde. Wear to the binding, but the plates are in excellent condition.
