DESCRIPTION

This book by the Moscow designer and graphic arts specialist Vladimir Krichevsky is dedicated to the graphic style of the 1956–1969 period, also known in Russian history by a remarkable poetical name.

The publication examines key aspects of the graphic manner and the most seminal stylistic canons, such as composition, fonts, nonrepresentational elements of a certain era. Graphic Signs of the Thaw is written for graphic art lovers, collectors, book addicts, publishers, and modern-day designers. By immersing the reader in the unheralded world of graphics, the author (a contemporary of the “thaw”) hopes to invoke genetic memory in the age of postmodernist “whateverness”.

ABOUT THE LECTURE

Vladimir Krichevsky is a Russian graphic designer, art historian, critic, and author of many articles and books on typography.
