Ads that I like: # 115


Happiness and abundance (1983)

As I think that we have already established, Chinese Communists are an awfully funny mob.

Not for them is the dramatic pose from a muscular proletarian superman, not when you can have fat little kids, plump goldfish and the blooming lotus.


The fish is fat, the lotus is fragrant (1987)


All over the mother country, glad tidings are spreading (1989)

Have you ever read "Iron Fists: branding the 20th century totalitarian state"? It's quite serious, but runs through the graphic design techniques and movements in Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, USSR and Communist China.

Plus it has pretty (if slightly disturbing) pictures, too.
