The artwork in these books is amazing.
I have this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Soviet-Political-Poster-1917-1980/d...
(I was awarded a book token as a merit prize at school. I chose this book. There was fleeting mild consternation on the faces of the teachers and the Conservative politician as they handed me the book in the award ceremony.)
Here's one example: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Soviet-Political-Posters-1917-80/dp/...
That one is lovely; A3 with reasonable printing. I'm a bit surprised there aren't more books. The posters cover a wide range of propaganda - including public health.
Most youth will only be vaguely aware of the origins of that style of imagery.
It is a bit weird, now that I think about it. It's a bit like Korean bars being "Hitler themed".
It would have been a lot more weird if they were showcasing actual Manchester City Council workers.
EDIT: Here's a great book about soviet political posters. I won an award at school, and I chose this book. It was handed to me by, I think, Baroness Warnock. I can't remember what she said, but it was kind and funny.
