|Red Tape from Red Square:
in Soviet Graphic Satirical ArtMarc Holzer, Iryna Illiash, Vatche Gabrielian,
and Lyudmila Kuznetsova
This publication presents Russian satirical posters and newspaper cartoons depicting the evils and unintended consequences of bureaucracy. The book is part of a rediscovery of a larger body of creative resources, such as novels, poetry, cinematography, theater, songs, sculpture, etc., many of which have been analyzed from an administrative perspective. The volume contains 303 full-color graphics accompanied by text and, in many instances, poems, all translated into English. The anti-bureaucratic satire of the Soviet era, often tame but telling — the main focus of the book — is represented by cartoons from newspapers and magazines of the 1920s through mid-1980s, the biggest being Krokodil and Literaturnaya Gazeta, as well as the "Fighting Pencil" posters.
