5.0 out of 5 stars A superlative survey of pre-Communist Russian graphics., 13 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Film Posters of the Russian Avant-Garde (Jumbo) (Hardcover)
Susan Pack's overview of the Russian avant-garde film poster, is a visual delight, and a welcome addition to the library of anyone interested in graphic design. This book is a handsome collection of pre-Communist posters from such notable graphic artists as the Stenberg brothers, and Alexander Rodchenko, as well as many other lesser known, yet talented artisans. Anyone familiar with Russian graphics of this period are in for a treat, and those seeing them for the first time will soon become addicted to their graphic impact, and innovative type treatments. A friend I've shown it to has warned me to keep an eye on it, lest it mysteriously disappear!
The book is written to address audiences in English, German, and French.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars!!, 6 Nov. 2010

This review is from: Film Posters of the Russian Avant-Garde (Jumbo) (Hardcover)
A feast for the eyes on every page - this is sumptuous and utterly engrossing. I'm not a graphic designer, nor a film buff - or indeed anything other than a mere dilettante of the visual arts. One that likes nothing more than doing bugger all on a Saturday afternoon other than browsing through a big heavy book with lots of incredible images. Over the years I've been lucky enough to amass a quite sizable collection of such books - but this is easily the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth saving (a lot) up for., 15 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Film Posters of the Russian Avant-Garde (Jumbo) (Hardcover)
This is a wonderful book. Packed with fantastic illustrations, loads of insightful and very readable text that informs and entertains. If you are even slightly attracted to it by its cover picture, buy it now. You will not be disappointed.
