Windows on the War is a groundbreaking publication - the first in English to focus on posters designed by the Soviet Union´s "TASS" news agency to bolster support for the Soviet war effort. "TASS" posters were created by a large collective of Soviet writers, printers and artists, including such notables as Mikhail Cheremnykh, Nikolai Denisovskii, the Kukryniksy, and Pavel Sokolov-Skalia. Often six feet tall and always striking and bold, these stenciled posters were printed and placed daily in windows for the public to see. They were also sent abroad to serve as international cultural "ambassadors", rallying Allied and neutral nations to the Soviet cause.
Drawn from the Art Institute of Chicago´s collection as well as other private and public holdings, these "TASS" posters have not been seen since World War II. An international team of scholars presents the "TASS" posters both as unique historical objects and as artworks that reveal how preeminent artists of the day used unconventional technical and visual means to contribute to the war effort, marking a major chapter in the history of design and propaganda. Generously illustrated, the book presents photographs, documentary materials and memorabilia in meaningful juxtapositions with images of the "TASS" posters.
Also included are documents illuminating the expression of Russian cultural life in the United States during the war, opening a fascinating window on to the war along the Eastern Front and the development of this remarkable aesthetic genre.
