Avant-Garde Graphics, 1918-1934
Lutz Becker (Editor)
February 2005
Book Description
Avant-garde artists of the 1920s and 30s discovered a new role, that of designers for the printing industry--what is today known as graphic design. As illustrated by the numerous stunning, high quality, color reproductions in this book, designers stripped away printers' ornaments and drawn illustrations; they no longer created captions on the page; and they brought in abstract, geometrical forms, photographs, plain typefaces and simple lettering, white space, and asymmetrical layouts.

Imagine No Possessions: The Socialist Objects of Russian Constructivism
Christina Kiaer
December 2005
Book Description
In Imagine No Possessions, Christina Kiaer investigates the Russian Constructivist conception of objects as being more than commodities. "Our things in our hands must be equals, comrades," wrote Aleksandr Rodchenko in 1925. Kiaer analyzes this Constructivist counterproposal to capitalism's commodity fetish by examining objects produced by Constructivist artists between 1923 and 1925: Vladimir Tatlin's prototype designs for pots and pans and other everyday objects, Liubov' Popova's and Varvara Stepanova's fashion designs and textiles, Rodchenko's packaging and advertisements for state-owned businesses (made in collaboration with revolutionary poet Vladimir Mayakovsky), and Rodchenko's famous design for the interior of a workers' club. These artists, heeding the call of Constructivist manifestos to abandon the...
