Poster art and propaganda remains an extremely popular medium, yet there has been no comprehensive collection published of the remarkable Vietnamese posters produced during their fight for independence and in the years following the establishment of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
This beautifully produced book admirably fills that gap, offering a broad-ranging collection of wartime posters, augmented by some peacetime examples on such themes as anti-smoking campaigns. Many of these brilliant images were produced in the jungle under the most primitive circumstances and under constant threat of attack and bombardment
A unique book at an excellent price.
