RUSSIAN FILM POSTERS: 1900-1930. Maria-Christina Boerner. Artis, 2012. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, Easthampton. 200 pp. 33 x 25 cm. ISBN 9781908126153 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: This volume, based on rarely seen Russian archives, traces the history of the silent film poster in Russia, starting with a poster designed by Paul Assaturov ('Stenka Razin', 1908) in the style of ancient na´ve Russian imagery to the latest advertisement for a silent movie by Yuri Pimenov from 1934. Full-page reproductions of 161 Russian silent film posters are presented here in chronological order - from the very beginning of the 20th century until the 1930s. These film posters are unique in their approach to representing films, creating new and original images- more evocative than descriptive. The movie is depicted through the use of expressive typography, geometric forms, minimalist illustrations and their distinctive technique of recreating photographs by hand. Works by famous artists of the time such as Alexander Rodchenko, the Stenberg Brothers, Yakov Ruklevsky, Nikolai Prusakov, Alexander Naumov and others are featured.
