about this item

Now in paperback, Red Star Over Russia is a breathtaking visual history, using posters, photographs, paintings, magazine covers, advertisements, and ephemera to illustrate the dramatic birth and eventual decline of the Soviet Union. The book plunges the reader into the shattering events that brought hope, chaos, heroism, and horror to the citizens of the world’s first workers’ state. The Russian Revolution produced some of the most important advances in art, photography, and graphic design in the 20th century. More than 550 of these widely influential materials are reproduced here, accompanied by David King’s accessible text. King rescues from obscurity many lost heroes and villains through the work of the most brilliant Soviet artists, many of them anonymous or long forgotten.
