Happy Birthday, Communism!

I'm not so fond of the Communist ideology that seeks to establish a classless, stateless social organization based on common ownership of the means of production(thank you, Wikipeadia) but I do love the art of the time: Here's a quick summary according to the nifty blog A Soviet Poster A Day.
Every soviet poster no matter the date of creation bears a stamp of expressiveness and graphical quality. The attention to details is awesome. The scope of techniques is endless. Soviet posters are a treasure chest with inspiration for any graphical designer, not to mention the seeing pleasure itself. And what's important, every Soviet Poster has a historical reference essential for understanding the layers of meanings it carries through time.
