This rather unique collection of posters from the Russian Civil War comes from Harold Manchester Fleming, who happened to be a field inspector for the American Relief Administration after World War I. Fleming acquired over 100 posters from the period, and they made their way to the New York Public Library's Manuscripts and Archives Division in the 1970s. Later, the collection grew with items donated by Paul S. Hall and Dorothy F. Hall and Alex Rabinovich from the same period. On this site, visitors can browse through posters by internationally known graphic artists such as Dmitrii Moor, Vladimir Maiakovskii, and Viktor Deni. All of the works here represent dramatic departures from the previous established design and artistic traditions in Russia at the time, and they address topics like industrialization, collectives, and urban life. All told, there are over 210 items here, and visitors can create their own scrapbook of images for future reference and also look over detailed records for each visual item.
