Posters Of The Czech Republic, Poland, And Hungary
Under the socialist regimes of Czechoslovakia, Poland, and Hungary, artists were not allowed the freedom to engage in artistic activities publicly. Posters and other forms of graphic design were one of the few genres available for artistic creativity and expression. This conveniently pocket-sized book presents a collection of 233 movie, theater, and other cultural posters that stimulate the imagination. The posters, which span from the 1960s through the 1980s, offer an invaluable glimpse into graphic and typographic design creativity in the post-war communist period. A short text in Japanese accompanies the catalog of posters, which are captioned in both English and Japanese.
