Strength Through Design : Third Reich Propaganda in Print (Hardcover) (Nigel Wingrove)
about this item
We all know of the horrifying success of ****** propaganda and its promotion of totalitarian and anti-Semitic ideas. In Strength Through Design, collector and author Nigel Wingrove breaks down how it all happened with reproductions of ****** books, magazines, brochures, newspapers, and posters. Strength Through Design collects and contextualizes a time when graphic design joined forces with the worst kind of state apparatus.
Nigel Wingrove is known for co-writing, with Marc Morris, The Art of the Nasty, a book that focused on the packaging of horror films and how "video nasty" hysteria gripped the British media in the early 1980s. When archaic blasphemy laws moved against artistic expression, Wingrove joined writers Salman Rushdie and Fay Weldon and film directors Derek Jarman and Michael Winner in suits heard at the European Court of Human Rights.
