Chinese Pop Posters

Ed./Corp.: Olivier Laude, Atlas Magazine, Winter 1996
URL: http://www.atlasmagazine.com/illust/china_posters/index.html
Language: English.
Description: A sequence of 24 Chinese propaganda posters (including a few
stamps), collected by Olivier Laude, editor of the Atlas Magazine, and
showing "images of revolutionaries, babies with peaches, generals on horses
and babies with fishes".
"These posters are used to decorate the walls of schools, private homes and
government institutions. They are produced by the central government in
Beijing and reflect the many political changes of the past 47 years of
communist rule. They are in many ways a very good historical record of
theeconomic, political and social turmoils China has undergone since 1949.
They also are tools of the central government's propaganda machine" (from
Olivier Laude's introduction to "Chinese Pop Posters").
The site has an informative introduction, and most of the posters are
commented on. Unfortunately no general index is provided, so you have to
browse the posters one by one.
