Details

In the Soviet Union, the years 1927 to 1933 saw a period of intense industrialization and collectivization, aiming to transform old Russia into a modern, mechanized society. Designers played their part and motifs such as gears, aeroplanes and locomotives, sports and agriculture appeared in fabrics, reinforcing industrial and social ideas. This book draws on the Lloyd Cotsen fabrics collection in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, to examine this short-lived but intriguing experiment in thematic design.
