Lenin working alongside subbotknik 'volunteers', Hitler in the shining armour of a Teutonic knight, a young girl soldier armed with the Thoughts of Chairman Mao during China's Cultural Revolution: through images such as these – creative artworks rather than the reality of photographs – communists and fascists marketed their visions of the perfect state.

Part of series surveying 20th century history, political iconography and propaganda through contemporary images, these 50 postcards are reproduced, with short commentaries, from originals in the John Fraser Collection at the Bodleian Library.
