From the author of the site:
‘Stalin poster of the week’ is a weekly excursion into the fascinating world of propaganda posters of Iosif Stalin. Here, I showcase some of the most interesting Stalin posters, based on my extensive research in the archives of the Russian State Library, and analyse what makes these images such successful propaganda. As the RSL poster collection is not digitised (nor are there any plans to do so), these posters remain largely unpublished and inaccessible to scholars, except by visiting the archives of the RSL in Moscow. The blog functions as a database of poster images that I hope will be useful for scholars across a wide range of disciplines.
