Amazon is currently taking pre-orders for Made in Russia: Unsung Icons of Soviet Design, a collection of fifty graphic and industrial designs that will be familiar to those acquainted with Soviet culture.
Made in Russia celebrates fifty such masterpieces, ranging from...the Lada car, the Sputnik rocket, and the Lomo camera, to icons of quotidian culture such as the fishnet shopping bag, the beveled twelve-sided glass, a Cold War-inspired arcade game, and Misha the Olympic bear.... The book is as much an intelligent reading book on forgotten aspects of Soviet culture as a tongue-in-cheek illustrated survey of an under-acknowledged but prolific period in Russian design and creativity.
The book features an introductory essay on design vis-a-vis Soviet culture, and each featured design is accompanied by an essay detailing its creation. Comes out on April 12th.
