Design-Alexander-RodchenkoDesign: Alexander Rodchenko
John Milner
Antique Collectors’ Club, $39.95

This new title in the Design series is an excellent introduction to the life and work of this versatile Russian artist. Alexander Mikhailovich Rodchenko (1891-1953) was a central figure in the Russian Constructivist art movement – a radical activist, a pioneer of photomontage, a theorist, and a teacher. He was an active force in the organisation of the first museums of modern art that arose in Russia in the first years after the Russian Revolution of 1917. This concise, comprehensive and informative work focuses largely on Rodchenko’s graphic work in the form of book jackets, posters and advertising.
